Congratulations to the Love and Schafer Groups! A collaborative effort between these two groups dealing with C-H bond activation towards organophosphate synthesis makes the cover of Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. This work showcases the potential application of a metal complex for the synthesis of agrochemically relevant molecules and highlights the ability to form new metal–carbon and boron–oxygen bonds by addition of a simple borane (BH2R). Dr. Renee Man (Department of Chemistry, Nagoya University) is thanked for help with preparation of the cover image. View the article and cover profile.
