Graphical Abstract

The Cover Feature shows the production of spherical iron oxide nanoparticles from iron atoms, which are liberated from ferrocene by femtosecond laser pulses. Since cyclopentadienyl ligands are separated and transformed to carbon agglomerates, nanoparticles are not covered with carbon shells. More information can be found in the Article by T. Okamoto et al. on page 2480 in Issue 19, 2018 (DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201800436).
