The cover picture shows Emil Fischer in his Berlin laboratory around 1910 and points to the unifying theme of several articles in this issue—the 100th anniversary of Fischer's lock-and-key principle. To mark this occasion a symposium took place in Mainz, Germany, last August with the title “Supramolecular Chemistry: 100 Years Schloss-Schlüssel-Prinzip”. A. Eschenmoser's introductory remarks from this conference, F. W. Lichtenthaler's tribute to Emil Fischer, and D. E. Koshland's lecture on the extension of Fischer's principle to the theory of induced fit are presented here.
