Best of Macros 2011 Covers

The Macromolecular Journals are happy to present again our selection of the best articles. Of around 1300 manuscripts published over the past 18 months, 10 have been selected to appear in Best of Macromolecular Journals 2011.

We are pleased to present to you here those articles, including contributions on such dynamic topics as the design and modeling of structures and materials, the reinforcement of nanocellular foams, triggered drug release, dendronized polymers, the thermoprecipitation of enzymes, and ‘Click’ chemistry. Additional topics are tailored polymer microstructures or proteins for application in biomaterials.
