The Macromolecular Journals are happy to present again our selection of the best articles. Of around 1200 manuscripts published over the past 15 months, the top 10 have been selected to appear in Best of Macromolecular Journals 2013.
Best of Macromolecular Journals 2013 will be distributed at all major conferences in polymer science, providing the highest possible exposure for the selected top articles. The communication on glycopolypeptides as potential inhibitors for dendritic cells and HIV-1, and the review article on industrial upscaling of electrospinning and applications of polymer nanofibers are additionally featured on the front and back cover, respectively.
Furthermore, we present a review on CO2-responsive polymers, highlights of green polymer chemistry and bio-based plastics, the chemical vapor deposition for solvent-free polymerization at surfaces, and computer-aided optimization of continuous activator regeneration atom transfer radical polymerization.
Moreover, this issue includes an article describing materials for self-regulated insulin delivery, the formation of polymersomes as a smart drug delivery platform, the effect of hydrogen and external electron donors on the microstructure of polypropylene, and the synthesis of π-conjugated polymers by Ru-catalyzed site-selective direct arylation polycondensation.
