Invited for the cover of this issue are the groups of Frank Glorius, Bruno Chaudret, and Piet W. N. M. van Leeuwen at the University of the University of Münster (Germany) and at the Laboratoire de Physique et Chimie des Nano-objets (LPCNO) of Toulouse (France). The image depicts a soluble Pt nanoparticle ligated by a long-chain N-heterocyclic carbene (represented as a force field) as an efficient catalyst in hydroboration of acetylenes. Read the full text of the article at 10.1002/chem.201702288. “Remarkably, only the Pt NPs ligated by a bulky ligand were active for the hydroboration of alkynes.” Read more about the story behind the cover in the Cover Profile and about the research itself on page ▪▪ ff. (DOI: 10.1002/chem.201702288).
