34_08/1995The cover picture shows a space-filling model of a porphyrin quinone model compound (1 b in the article with 2 H instead of Zn), which can be used to simulate and analyze the first step of the charge separation in photosynthesis (shown schematically). Investigations of this kind have allowed the study of the factors contributing to the high efficiency of the charge separation in the photosynthetic reaction centers. More about the recent investigations on porphyrin quinones is reported by H. Kurreck and M. Huber on p. 849ff.
