Cover: The redox-mechanical cycle of an electrochemically driven macromolecular motor of an individual end-grafted poly-(ferrocenyldimethylsilane) chain is described by four states. An oxidized chain (state 1) is stretched using electrochemical single molecule force spectroscopy (2). Subsequent to the reduction (3) the force is released (4). Further details can be found in the Communication by S. Zou, M. A. Hempenius, H. Schönherr, and G. J. Vancso* on page 103.
