The frontispiece shows a bioinspired and solar-powered device for catalytic generation of fuel, the Artificial Leaf, with immobilized catalysts and light harvesting units having donor–acceptor pairs on anodic and cathodic sites separated by a proton exchange membrane. The Minireview by Khurram S. Joya, Huub J. M. de Groot, and co-workers on page 35 ff. outlines progress in the field of electrodriven water oxidation devices in relation to solar energy conversion into clean and renewable fuels. Water oxidation assemblies using single-site, binuclear, or multicenter molecular complexes and future perspective of water splitting catalysis for generation of solar fuel are also presented.
