Diamonds are an explosive’s best friend – PCCP aritcle in Chemistry World

Scientists from China have coated the high energy explosive RDX (hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine) with nanodiamonds in an attempt to make safer explosives.

The group, led by Yi Tong, from the Beijing Institute of Technology, prepared detonation nanodiamonds by detonating a mixture of TNT and RDX in a closed metallic chamber. Detonation nanodiamonds are known to have excellent Diamonds are an explosive’s best friend - © Shutterstockmechanical properties, including high thermal conductivity and electrical resistivity, whilst being chemically reactive but also environmentally benign. RDX was coated with different proportions of nanodiamonds to try to stabilise the explosive. This is important as you don’t want explosives to detonate if they are accidently heated when in storage.

By studying the thermodynamics of the resulting composites, the group found that nanodiamond coatings of between 1/7 and 1/5 of the mass of the RDX led to composites that were more stable than RDX alone, but that were more reactive than composites with thinner coatings. They also found that increasing the nanodiamond ratio to more than 1/3 of the mass of the RDX hindered the decomposition of the material.

Applications open for the 2015 Gordon F. Kirkbright Bursary Award

The Gordon F. Kirkbright bursary award is a prestigious annual award that enables a promising student/non-tenured young scientist of any nation to attend a recognised scientific meeting or visit a place of learning.

The fund for this bursary was established in 1985 as a memorial to Professor Gordon Kirkbright in recognition of his contributions to analytical spectroscopy and to science in general. Although the fund is administered by the Association of British Spectroscopists (ABS) Trust, the award is not restricted to spectroscopists.

Applications are invited for the 2015 Gordon Kirkbright Bursary.

For further information contact John Chalmers by email: vibspecconsult@aol.com

The closing date for entries is 31 December 2014.

Insights into “carbon bonds” highlighted

Schematic of proposed "carbon bond"The work of PCCP Advisory Board member Professor Elangannan Arunan on noncovalent bonding interactions has been highlighted in the latest Edition of Chemical & Engineering News. The so-called “carbon bonds” have been suggested as the force behind the hydrophobic effect.

You can find the full details of this fascinating research here:

The X–CY (X = O/F, Y = O/S/F/Cl/Br/N/P) ‘carbon bond’ and hydrophobic interactions
Devendra Mani and E. Arunan
DOI: 10.1039/C3CP51658J

The C&EN article also discusses the important work of Professor T. N. Guru Row’s group which very recently appeared in Chemical Communications on X-ray data which provides experimental evidence of the effect:

Experimental evidence for ‘carbon bonding’ in the solid state from charge density analysis
Sajesh P. Thomas, Mysore S. Pavan and T. N. Guru Row
DOI: 10.1039/C3CC47226D

And while you are at it, check out the PCCP Perspective by Peter Politzer et al. which provides an overview of this area:

Altmetrics now featured on PCCP

We are pleased to announce the inclusion of Altmetrics on PCCP.

With a constantly changing publishing landscape and changes to the way people use scientific literature, altmetrics is a measure that can monitor the level of conversation and interest in a particular piece of research at the article level. Thus altmetrics provides an additional modern metric for our authors to measure the impact of their work, rather than rely solely on citations and impact factor.

To view altmetrics on PCCP articles, use the Metrics tab as pictured below on the article landing page.

 Altmetrics for PCCP

 

A press release from Altmetrics is available on our website.

What do you think? We are interested to hear your feedback on this new development and how you are utilising these new types of metrics. Please leave your comments below.

PCCP themed issue: Size Selected Clusters and Particles: From Physical Chemistry to Catalysis

PCCP themed issue: Size Selected Clusters and Particles: From Physical Chemistry to Catalysis

Guest Editors: Stefan Vajda (Argonne National Laboratory) and Jeroen van Bokhoven (ETH Zürich)

Deadline for Submissions: 16th May 2014

Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) is delighted to announce a high-profile themed issue ‘Size Selected Clusters and Particles: From Physical Chemistry to Catalysis’.

Please do let us know if you are interested in contributing to this themed issue by emailing the PCCP Editorial Office (pccp-rsc@rsc.org). We look forward to hearing from you.

The themed issue will be published in PCCP in 2014. It will receive great exposure, and get significant promotion.

PCCP is a high-impact, community spanning, international journal publishing work of the highest quality in the broad fields of physical chemistry, chemical physics and biophysical chemistry.

Ultrasmall clusters and particles consist of dominantly under-coordinated surface atoms, but the ratio of facet to corner and edge atoms increases with growing size. The variety and controllability of surface or binding-site atoms offers an excellent tuning knob to optimize binding, reactivity and catalytic properties. Moreover, small particles facilitate reaction pathways that are not feasible on extended rigid surfaces, because they can undergo dynamical structural changes.

This themed issue aims to address the need for the fundamental understanding of the evolution of physicochemical and catalytic properties of matter starting with small subnanometer size clusters that consist of only a handful of atoms, up to particles nanometers in size. Both experimental and computational contributions are welcome.

Please note that:

  • Submissions must contain new physical insight and should be high quality manuscripts of original, unpublished research.
  • Communications and full papers can be submitted for consideration.
  • If you are interested in submitting a ‘PCCP Perspective-review’ article this themed issue, please get in touch with the Editorial Office for more information about Perspective articles.
  • Manuscripts can be submitted in any reasonable format using our online submissions service.
  • You should indicate upon submission that your manuscript is intended for this themed issue.
  • All submissions will be subject to an initial assessment by the editors and, if appropriate, rigorous peer review.

The deadline for submissions to the themed issue is 16th May 2014, although submissions before this date are of course welcomed.
