I am delighted to announce that Professor Len MacGillivray has been appointed as the new Chair of the CrystEngComm Editorial Board, from January 2011.
Based at the University of Iowa, Len, who has been a member of the Editorial Board since 2008, has research interests in the areas of molecular recognition, self assembly and supramolecular chemistry. In particular, Len’s work involves the use of template controlled synthesis in the solid state, using rigid bifunctional molecules as linear templates, to direct the formation of C-C bonds covalent bonds.
Len will become Chair of the Editorial Board in January, when Neil Champness (The University of Nottingham) ends his term as Chair. Neil has been Chair of the Editorial Board since 2007, and a member of the Editorial Board for 10 years.
We very much look forward to working with Len in his new role.
