The Back Cover picture shows the free energy landscape for Li+ solvation in ethyleammonuim nitrate (EAN). Using first-principle simulations aided by a metadynamics approach, the solvation and transport of lithium in EAN was investigated. We identified different lithium solvation scenarios that were explored by the metadynamics and quantified their free energy barriers. The lowest free-energy barrier appears to be consistent with what has been observed experimentally. More details can be found in the Full Paper by Kachmar et al. (DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201700510).
