356_13/2014Cover Picture: (Adv. Synth. Catal. 13/2014)

The front cover picture, provided by the group of Koike and Akita, illustrates a simple synthesis of (±)-baclofen through photoredox-catalyzed hydroaminomethylation of an electron-deficient alkene with aminomethyltrifluoroborate. The picture at the center is the sun in a light bulb. It represents the present photocatalytic system using natural sunlight and LED lamps as a light source. Lightning at the background is the symbol of the redox processes, which are the essence of the catalysis. Details can be found in the communication on pages 2749–2755 (K. Miyazawa, T. Koike, M. Akita Adv. Synth. Catal. 2014, 356, 2749–2755; DOI: 10.1002/adsc.201400556).
