The cover picture shows the mechanism of photodegradation of methylene blue (MB) using coordination complexes, namely, [Zn(btbp)(3-npa)]n, [Co(btbh)(3-npa)]n and {[Co(btbb)(5-nipa)(H2O)]·H2O}n (btbp = 1,3-bis(thiabendazole)propane, btbh = 1,6-bis(thiabendazole)hexane, btbb = 1,4-bis(thiabendazole)butane, 3-H2npa = 3-nitro phthalic acid and 5-H2nipa = 5-nitro isophthalic acid). Introducing different scavengers used as probes into the system of photocatalytic degradation of MB suggests that superoxide radicals, direct holes and hydroxyl radicals are active species for the photocatalytic degradation. More details are discussed in the article by Cui et al. on pp. 804ff.
