“In order to explain the enhancement of catalytic activities in atomic metal clusters, the concept of ‘structural fluxionality’ has been frequently invoked…” This and more about the story behind the front cover can be found in the Research Article at 10.1002/cphc.202300317.
The front cover artwork is provided by María Pilar de Lara-Castells, Head of the AbinitFot Group at IFF-CSIC (Madrid), Coordinator of the National Project “COSYES”, and Chair of the COST Action CA21101 “COSY“, and Alexander O. Tereshchenko Mitrushchenkov from the University Gustave Eiffel (France). The image shows the connection between the Janh-Teller effect featured by bypiramidal Cu5 clusters and the property of fluxionality. Cover design by Katarzyna Krupka.
