The Cover picture shows an implementation of molecular solar thermal energy storage (MOST) technology on a large scale. It illustrates how the yellow-colored dihydroazulene (DHA) is converted into red-colored vinylheptafulvene (VHF) upon irradiation. The robust nature of this system was demonstrated through multiple energy storage-and-release cycles. As a potential candidate for the MOST concept, the photoswitch was evaluated both under simulated sunlight conditions as well as under natural outdoor conditions, demonstrating a possible avenue for future lab-to-site transfer. More details can be found in the Full Paper by Wang et al. (DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201700679).
