Cover Picture Richard A. Lerner* In Paul Ehrlichs era selecting an antibody for a specific target was a physical process, involving live animals. R. A. Lerner shows in his Review on page 8106 ff. how combinatorial libraries are the incarnation of Ehrlichs (see inset in the cover picture showing “Der B%cherwurm” by Carl Spitzweg) “magic bullet”, proposed more than 100 years ago, and nowadays hundreds of millions of different antibodies can be provided in a couple of hundred microliters of solution in a test tube. Hollow Nanostructures Dendritic platinum nanosheets grow and link together within a liposomal bilayer to form spherical hollow nanocages. J. A. Shelnutt and co-workers describe this method in their Communication on page 8126 ff. Fluorinated Phthalocyanines The unique photosensitivity of monomeric trifluoroethoxy-substituted zinc phthalocyanines conjugated with deoxyribonucleosides is described in the Communication by N. Shibata, T. Toru, and co-workers on page 8163 ff. Molecular Recognition G.-T. Li and co-workers describe in their Communication on page 8145 ff. a combined molecular imprinting and colloidal crystal approach to prepare ordered 3D macroporous photonic polymer films for specific enantiomer recognition.
