Issue 10 online today! Artificial skin, robust SPR sensing platform and plenty of Technical Innovations

Research led by Jan van Hest and Floris Delft at the Institute for Molecules and Materials, The Netherlands, is highlighted by the front cover artwork. Their research finds a robust way to control the immobilization of azide-containing ligands on a surface for surface plasmon resonance sensing (SPR) using strain-promoted cycloaddition on a cyclooctyne-modified surface. Don’t forget our cover articles are free to access for 6 weeks*!
