Cover Picture of the Year 2002: And the Winners are...
... Georg Süss-Fink and co-workers (Neuchâtel, Switzerland) who submitted the cover picture of Issue 1 to emphasize supramolecular cluster catalysis, which is commonly regarded as a field lying at the interface of homogeneous and heterogenous catalysis (artwork: T. Ward and C. Thomas). As an example, their Communication reports "[...] Benzene Hydrogenation Catalyzed by a Cationic Triruthenium Cluster under Biphasic Conditions."
The covers of Issues 10 (Nicolaou/Corey, artwork: R. Echon, S. Snyder), 17 (Vollhardt), and 2 (Waldmann, artwork: P. Herter, G. Schulte) were also very popular among voters.
On the voters' side, the winner drawn among about 1500 participants is Stijn Wuyts, a PhD student at the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium, who works on racemization reactions, dynamic kinetic resolution, heterogeneous catalysis, enzyme catalysis, and chirality under the supervision of Pierre Jacobs and Dirk De Vos. He will receive a copy of "World Records in Chemistry" by R. Faust et al.
Thank you very much to all participants and congratulations to the winners!
