About the cover: A better understanding of carbon dioxide dynamics in metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) can lead to the optimal design of materials for carbon-capture applications. In their Communication on page 4410 ff., L.-C. Lin et al. utilized molecular simulation techniques to analyze CO2 dynamics inside MOFs with open metal sites. They identified the hopping motion of CO2 between different metal sites as the signature of the experimentally measured patterns in the 13C NMR chemical shift anisotropy.
