50_06i/2011Inside Cover: Supramolecular Architecture with a Cavitand–Capsule Chimera (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 6/2011)

The Chimera is a Greek mythological creature that is traditionally composed of a lion, a goat, and a snake. In their Communication on page 1299 ff., J. Rebek, Jr. et al. report a nine-component assembly based on a host molecule that contains orthogonal binding sites. The Etruscan bronze statue “Chimera of Arezzo” serves as the background for the model of the self-assembled, ditopic host: a cavitand–capsule chimera. The three guests of the assembly are shown as gold space-filling models, while the host is depicted in stick form.
