Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) is delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Katsuhiko Ariga and Professor Seong Keun Kim as Associate Editors of the journal.
Professor Ariga is the Director of Supermolecules Group at the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) in Japan. His research covers supermolecular chemistry and surface science, including the boundaries between organic chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry, and materials chemistry.
Professor Kim is head of the Molecular Reaction Dynamics Laboratory at Seoul National University, Korea. He uses spectroscopic, microscopic, and computational methods to investigate a wide range of subjects from molecular physics and nanoscience to cell biology.
PCCP is committed to publishing the best research from Asia in the broad fields of physical chemistry, chemical physics and biophysical chemistry. We also have many leading Asian scientists on our international Editorial and Advisory Boards: Professors Asuka Fujii, Yasuhiro Iwasawa, Yoshiyasu Matsumoto, Zhong-Qun Tian, Li-jun Wan, Wenchuan Wang and Xueming Yang, as well as Yuan Tseh Lee on our Honorary Board.
On behalf of Professors Ariga and Kim and all our Editorial Board, we invite you to submit your best work to PCCP.
PCCP and the Royal Society of Chemistry have strong links with scientists in Asia and we now have RSC offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Toyko.
So you can see for yourself the quality of work appearing in PCCP, we have selected some recent Perspective review articles from authors all across Asia which are available to read for free for a limited period.
