Abstract

Invited for this month’s cover are the groups of Hansjörg Grützmacher at ETH in Zürich and Francesco Vizza at ICCOM-CNR in Florence. The image shows in an allegoric form an organometallic fuel cell releasing energy and fine chemicals produced through the electrooxidation of renewable diols. The Communication itself is available at 10.1002/cssc.201402316
