The cover picture shows the fullerene@MOF materials with unique properties and applica-tions. Fullerenes have many potential applica-tions in various fields such as biomedicine, organic photovoltaics, molecular device, et al. It is very meaningful to explore more functional fullerene materials due to their spherical struc-ture and attractive properties. Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have gained particular in-terest due to the porous character and their applications in gas storage and catalysis. Therefore, it is fascinating to encapsulate mo-lecular fullerenes into MOF pores and to con-struct new complex materials. In this review, we discuss the up-to-date study progress for the preparation and applications of fullerene@MOF materials. More details are discussed in the article by Meng on page 180019.
