The image was made by Kazuaki Ishihara and colleagues from Nagoya University, the Sekisui Medical Co., and the Japan Science and Technology Agency. The cover image illustrates the research from their Catalysis Science & Technology paper in Issue 7 on ‘Catalytic enantioselective alkyl and aryl addition to aldehydes and ketones with organozinc reagents derived from alkyl Grignard reagents or arylboronic acids’ Catal. Sci. Technol., 2011, 1, 1149-1158
More about Professor Ishihara’s work can be found on his webpage.
The inside cover is by Liqiang Xu and co-workers from Shandong University, China and illustrates their work on ‘High yield synthesis of novel boron nitride submicro-boxes and their photocatalytic application under visible light irradiation’ Catal. Sci. Technol., 2011, 1, 1159-1165
