Front Cover: Amino-acid-based surfactants with polymer-izable moieties are used for the preparation of polymer nanoparticles with a chiral surface functionality. As an example of their application, the resulting chiral particles are shown to drive enantioselective crystallization of amino acid conglomerate systems. The cover image represents a chiral particle interacting with a crystal. Further details can be found in the article by L. C. Preiss, M. Wagner, Y. Mastai, K. Landfester, and R. Muñoz-Espí* on page 1421. Cover artwork by Stefan Schuhmacher.
