As part of the celebrations for the 20th anniversary of Chemistry – A European Journal we would like to invite you to enter our cover quiz competition. Each week, for twenty weeks, we will post a multiple choice question based on one of the fabulous pieces of cover art that we have received over the past twenty years.

At the end of this competition, three entrants will be chosen at random to win a prize. The first prize will be either a subscription to Chemistry – A European Journal or the book Molecules of the World by K. C. Nicolaou and Tamsyn Montagnon, the second and third prizes will be a T-shirt.

Each article behind the cover graphic that we feature will be free to read until the end of the year.
