The cover picture shows the ratiometric detection of Pb2+ with a fluorescent sensor Leadglow. Within the last decade many advances in Pb2+ detection have been made, ranging from small organic molecule detection to large DNAzymes. The background pictorially describes a simple water cycle, indicating routes for Pb2+ contamination. Details are presented in the Microreveiw by K. Deibler and P. Basu on p. 1086 ff.
