Inside Back Cover: Cyclodextrin-Induced Auto-Healing of Hybrid Polyoxometalates (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2/2012)
Auto-healing of a polyoxometalate hybrid was induced by a cyclodextrin. In their Communication on page 487 ff., G. Izzet, M. Ménand, M. Sollogoub, A. Proust, and co-workers describe the first host–guest complex involving a cyclodextrin and polyoxometalate hybrid containing an organic moiety. The encapsulation of the organic moiety prevents its degradation when it is released by a basic stress and allows complete restoration of the hybrid upon neutralization.
