New COVER in Chemistry. A European Journal for borane-based fluorescent molecular switches

The Chemistry. A European Journal features in its INSIDE COVER the recently published article "Reversibly switchable fluorescent molecular systems based on metallacarborane‐perylenediimide conjugates" by ICMAB researcher, Rosario Núñez, and co-workers from the UAB and ICMAB.

By combining the versatile electrochemical behavior of cobalt-based metallacarboranes with the excellent emission properties of perylenediimides, new fluorescent molecular switches were prepared that respond to redox stimuli. These systems not only surpass the performance of previous switches based on other metal complexes, but also allow the preparation ofsupramolecular fluorescent gels by taking advantage of the self-assembly capabilities of their constituting units.

The cover illustrates a "switch" and its two states: ON (fluorescent state) and OFF (non-fluorescent state), which is related to the Cobalt oxidation state.
