The cover picture shows graphite oxide (upper part) and its reduction in the solution containing complex hydrides (lower part). Deuterium labeling allowed clarification of the puzzling mechanism by proving that reduction was also accompanied by graphene hydrogenation. Details are given in the Full Paper by Zdeněk Sofer, Martin Pumera and co-workers (DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500168).
