journals from Wiley and the Royal Society of Chemistry with featured inner cover art. In the first case, the work of Prof Yan Zhao, Iowa State University, on the sequence-specific imprinting of peptides on the surface of cross-linked micelles was featured in a frontispiece in Chemistry - A European Journal last month. You can see the full sized artwork here
. The artwork accompanies the article "Sequence‐Selective Recognition of Peptides in Aqueous Solution: A Supramolecular Approach through Micellar Imprinting", Y. Zhao, Chem. Eur. J.
, 2018, 24
(53), 14001-14009; DOI: 10.1002/chem.201801401
This has been followed by a similar feature on the work of Prof. Qiuyu Zhang and colleagues from the Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi’an, China in the Journal of Materials Chemistry B.

Prof. Zhang's work on the synthesis of protein (BSA) imprinted micron sized particles is part of the 2018 Journal of Materials Chemistry B HOT Papers
collection. The journal artwork accompanies the paper "Fabrication of micron-sized BSA-imprinted polymers with outstanding adsorption capacity based on poly(glycidyl methacrylate)/polystyrene (PGMA/PS) anisotropic microspheres", Y.F. Wang et al.
