Small-Molecule Activation by Reactive Metal Complexes, the focus of double issue 22 and 23, is an important topic towards a greener future. This special issue highlights the progress made in this highly relevant field – the conversion of small molecules of biological and industrial importance, such as N2, O2, CO2, CO, H2, H2O, amongst others. All aspects of this topic are covered, from synthesis and bonding, mechanisms of reactions, theoretical aspects, to catalysis; all of this and more are highlighted. The Guest Editors for this issue are Connie Lu (University of Minnesota, USA) and Karsten Meyer (University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany).

Polyoxometalates are at the heart of issues 10 and 11, 2013. Once again, this bumper issue highlights the prolific output from this community. Since the last cluster issue on this topic (Issue 34, 2009), the interest in this topic has not abated. The papers in this issue are dedicated to Professor Michael Pope, a true pioneer of the field, on the occasion of his 80th birthday. The Guest Editors for this issue, Ulrich Kortz (University of Bremen, Germany) and Tianbo Liu (Lehigh University, USA), bring you the best of the polyoxometalate world.

Hybrid Materials are covered in Issue 32, 2012. This field has developed and connects the various disciplines, from chemistry to medicine to physics and more. This Cluster Issue entitled Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Materials: Design and Application collects contributions from scientists from all corners of the world. A highlight of this issue is the Essay by Professor Clément Sanchez, a pioneer in this field, who presents a valuable overview of hybrid materials. This issue was inspired by the EMRS Spring Meeting 2012, Symposium P on "Advanced Hybrid Materials II: Design and Applications", which was held in Strasbourg. The Guest Editors for this issue are Pierre Rabu (IPCMS Strasbourg, France), Andreas Taubert (University of Potsdam, Germany) and Markus J. Buehler (MIT, USA).

Issue 29, 2012 highlights the progress in the field of Coordination Chemistry, a topic at the heart of Inorganic Chemistry. The issue entitled Modern Coordination Chemistry and Its Impact for Meeting Global Challenges showcases the progress made in this vast field that affects many other areas of chemistry. The issue is loosely based on the 3rd Zing Coordination Chemistry Conference, held in Xcaret, Mexico in December 2011. The Guest Editors for this issue are Debbie Crans (Colorado State University, USA) and Franc Meyer (University of Göttingen, Germany), who were chairs of the conference.

Although Advanced Complex Inorganic Materials encompasses a very broad research area, a taste of recent innovations in this field of nanomaterials can be found in Issue 16, 2012. This special issue highlights the progress made with the preparation of such materials, which range from hybrids, ceramics, metal-organic frameworks, bioinspired materials, as well as with the application of these materials as catalysts, as sorbents, as hybrid magnets, as spin-crossover materials and as magnetic resonance imaging agents. This issue was based on the Advanced Complex Inorganic Materials (ACIN) international symposium, which was held in Namur in September 2011. The Guest Editors for this issue are Yann Garcia (Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium) and Bao-Lian Su (University of Namur, Belgium, and University of Cambridge, UK).

Organometallic chemistry is a core topic of the European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, and Issue 9, 2012, serves to reinforce this fact, and above all, to showcase some of the exciting developments in this area. Many aspects of this broad discipline are covered in this issue. The idea for this cluster issue was born from the XIX EuCHEMS Conference on Organometallic Chemistry (EuCOMC) held in Toulouse (July 2011). The Guest Editors for this issue are Rinaldo Poli and Philippe Kalck (both at LCC, CNRS, Toulouse, France), who were co-organisers of this conference.

Cooperative & Redox Non-Innocent Ligands in Directing Organometallic Reactivity is the focus of Issue 3, 2012. The properties and applications of the two ligand-types, Cooperative and Redox non-innocent ligands, is presented, and the influence of these ligands on the chemical reaction and their importance in inorganic chemistry and catalysis is highlighted. The possibilities of these ligand groups to serve in uncovering many new exciting reactions are endless. An insightful Essay by Professor Wolfgang Kaim, a pioneer in this field, is featured in this issue. The Guest Editor for this issue is Bas de Bruin (University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands).
