Inside Back Cover: Controlled Electropolymerization of Ruthenium(II) Vinylbipyridyl Complexes in Mesoporous Nanoparticle Films of TiO (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 19/2014)



original image

Electrochemically controlled radical polymerization enabled the growth of ruthenium(II) vinylpolypyridyl complexes within the cavities of TiO2 films, as described by T. J. Meyer et al. in their Communication on page 4872 ff. The in situ prepared film is of potential for harvesting light in dye-sensitized solar cells and in dye-sensitized photoelectrosynthesis cells that operate in an aqueous environment.
