The back cover picture shows the structure of a borylated enamino ketone surrounded by holiday ornaments. N. A. Bokach, V. Y. Kukushkin, and co-workers report a novel reaction between closo-decaborate clusters and azomethine ylides, which selectively affords products of nucleophilic addition, for example, the borylated enamino ketones. A full account can be found in their Full Paper on page 1075 ff.
