Cover Picture Jean Vollet, Jens R. Hartig, and Hansgeorg Schnckel* A model Al50 cluster is part of the largest known molecular organometallic compound comprised of metal, carbon, and hydrogen. A central Al8 unit (blue in the picture) is made up of 42 Al atoms (silver), 12 of which carry pentamethylcyclopentadienyl (Cp*) groups. The 60 methyl groups of the Cp* ligands (red pentagons) produce a surface topolgy reminiscent of a football. Further details on this Al50Cp12 12 cluster can be found in the Communication by H. Schn*ckel et al. on page 3186 ff.
