The cover image features the synergic combination of ultraporous crystals with functional nanoparticles for the fabrication of smart devices. With a one-pot approach, quantum dots are embedded in the framework crystal without affecting the properties of the luminescent particles. The final framework composite represents a new class of ultraporous luminescent materials that has been tested as a molecular sieve sensor.
