The cover picture shows an inverted G-tetrad (top left) formed through metal–ligand bond formation between chelate-tethered guanine nucleobases and CdSO4. Individual tetramer units assembled into columnar aggregates as a result of sulfate anions bridging adjacent Cd centres (bottom). Further association of the cylindrical polymers occurs through stacking interactions involving the six-membered rings of the nucleobase (right). This work is described in more detail by A. Houlton et al. on pp. 4371 ff.
