      The cover picture, provided by David W. C. MacMillan, shows a dual-catalytic aldehyde alkylation via photoredox organocatalysis in which electrophilic radicals (derived from the photoredox cycle; above) combine with facially biased enamine intermediates (derived from the organocatalytic cycle; below). The photoredox catalyst, Ru(bpy)32+ readily accepts a photon from a visible light source to populate the *Ru(bpy)32+ metal-to-ligand charge transfer (MLCT) excited state, eventually enabling single-electron transfer (SET) with an alkyl halide to furnish the electron-deficient alkyl radical. Simultaneously, the organocatalytic cycle is initiated upon condensation of the imidazolidinone catalyst (inset) exclusively with a non-substituted aldehyde to form a stereochemically-defined enamine. The two activation pathways merge in the key alkylation step via rapid addition of the electrophilic radical to the π-rich olefin followed by a series of concerted steps which return the organocatalyst and photocatalyst to their respective cycles and render the optically enriched α-alkyl aldehyde.

      As Advanced Synthesis & Catalysis (ASC) enters its 10th year, it is enjoying unprecedented success: with 5.619, the highest Impact Factor ever for a primary organic chemistry journal and a jump of 13% over the previous year; an increase in the number of pages of 11% from 3028 to 3340; an increase in the number of unsolicited articles published of 11% from 327 to 362; an increase in the number of submissions of 11% from 819 to 909. China increased its lead in the country statistics, in both submissions and published articles. As the quality standard of the journal increases, so does the rejection rate: from 55% in 2008 to 59% in 2009.
