The Cover picture shows the use of renewable aviation fuels produced from C−C coupling and hydrodeoxygenation of lignocellulosic biomass-derived platform molecules. Production of these molecules occurs through an energy efficient process using a bifunctional Ir−ReOx/SiO2 catalyst and yields up to 99% branched chain alkanes at low temperature. The high efficiency and high products selectivity eliminate the need for complex separations and may render bio-based aviation fuels to become cost-competitive and sustainable. More details can be found in the Full Paper by Liu et al. (DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201700863).
