Cover Story (view full-size image): The cover image shows possible structures of dual thermoresponsive block copolymers. These block copolymers can change the properties of each block resulting in hydrophilic–hydrophilic (dissolution), amphiphilic (assembly), and hydrophobic–hydrophobic (aggregation/precipitation) by changing the solution temperature without any additional chemicals. This review is divided into three parts: lower critical solution temperature (LCST)—LCST types of block copolymers; upper critical solution temperature (UCST)—LCST types of block copolymers; and their potential as biomedical applications.
