50_30i/2011Inside Cover: A Light-Stimulated Molecular Switch Driven by Radical–Radical Interactions in Water (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 30/2011)

A light-stimulated molecular switch in the form of a bistable [2]rotaxane, which undergoes controllable intramolecular motion through many cycles in water, is described by J. F. Stoddart and co-workers in their Communication on page 6782 ff. The fundamental understanding of molecular switches that operate in water is improved and the possibility of developing integrated nanobiomechanical systems for applications in challenging arenas, such as molecular prosthetics, is opened up.
