Abstract

The front cover artwork for Issue 6/2014 is provided by the research group of Inorganic Materials Chemistry and the Institute for Complex Molecular Systems, Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands). The image shows a concept of a hydrogen battery in which H2 storage and its release are achieved through reversible hydrogenation of CO2 catalysed by an Ru-PNP pincer complex.
