The cover picture shows extremely explosive compounds containing two nine-membered Si-peroxide rings bridged by an ethane, ethene, or ethyne group. These peroxides were synthesized by the reaction of 1,2-bis[dichloro(alkyl)silyl]ethanes, (E)-1,2-bis[dichloro(methyl)silyl]ethene, or 1,2-bis[dichloro(methyl)silyl]ethyne with 1,1′-dihydroperoxyperoxides and were isolated as individual compounds. Details are discussed in the article by A. Terent'ev et al. on p. 6877 ff.
