Cover Picture Xiuchun Gao,+ Tomislav Friščić, and Leonard R. MacGillivray* A supramolecular approach to covalent synthesis allows the photoconversion of polyenes into ladderanes, which are challenging synthetic targets discovered in the lipid membranes of the anammox bacteria that participate in the oceanic nitrogen cycle. In their Communication on page 232 ff. X. Gao, T. Friščić, and L. R. MacGillivray explain how solid-state synthesis directed by molecular templates can provide gram quantities of the ladderanes in quantitative yield. Thus, ladderanes bridge a gap between conventional synthesis, supramolecular chemistry, and biology.
