The Inside Cover picture underlines the dynamic torsional motions of excited-state dye molecules in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs), which mimic the photosynthesis of a green leaf for a sustainable energy supply. The enhancement of DSC performance can be facilitated through a combined theoretical and experimental investigation, exemplified here by changing the electron acceptor of light absorbers from cyanoacryclic acid to benzothiadiazole benzoic acid. More details can be found in the Full Paper by Wang et al. on page 97 (DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402806).
