The Journal of Organic Chemistry features on its front cover the recently published research article “Successive Diels–Alder Cycloadditions of Cyclopentadiene to CPP?C60: A Computational Study”.
The cover art describes computationally the functionalization of the CPP?C60 by cyclopentadiene through successive Diels–Alder cycloadditions reaching the hexakis adduct system. The graphics depict the successive cycloadditions over the CPP?C60 as a representation of an invasion of cyclopentadienes. The design and original idea of the artwork are acknowledged to Miss Coral Garcia-Fernandez and Dr. Gerard Pareras.
