The front cover picture, provided by Jan von Langermann, illustrates the use of biocatalytic active static emulsions (BASE) for the synthesis of (S)-cyanohydrins. With this technique high yields and enantiomeric excesses were obtained with the hydroxynitrile lyase from Manihot esculenta, while the undesired spontaneous reaction to racemic cyanohydrins was fully suppressed. The background of the picture shows a microscopic image of the static emulsion. Details can be found in the full paper on pages 2989–2997 (J. von Langermann and S. Wapenhensch Adv. Synth. Catal.­ 2014, 356, 2989–2997; DOI: 10.1002/adsc.201301149).
