Catalysis research builds bridges between disciplines. The cover picture shows the linking position of surface organometallic chemistry between the two traditional areas of catalysis. The transfer of the concepts and tools of molecular organometallic chemistry to surfaces leads to the generation of well-defined surface species. The success of this approach results from understanding the reactions of organometallic complexes with the support. More about this field can be found in the review by Copéret, Basset, et al. on page 156ff.
