Cover: The electrospinning technique was employed to obtain conducting nanofibers based on polyaniline and poly(lactic acid). A statistical model was employed to describe how the process factors (solution concentration, applied voltage, and flow rate) govern the fiber dimensions. Nanofibers down to 50 nm were obtained by choosing appropriate conditions. Further details can be found in the article by P. H. S. Picciani,* E. S. Medeiros, F. G. de Souza Jr., D. F. Wood, W. J. Orts, B. G. Soares,* and L. H. C. Mattoso on page 528.
