Themed Issue: Mechanochemistry

C3CS90058DWe are delighted to present the Chem Soc Rev themed issue on mechanochemistry.

Guest editors Stuart James and Tomislav Friščić introduce the issue in their Editorial.

Although mechanochemistry as a phenomenon has been recognised for a long time, its application with regard to chemical synthesis has traditionally been limited to the area of insoluble inorganic materials. However, James and Friščić point towards a growing realisation that it is also applicable to molecular, soluble reactants, and that it may even offer advantages over the solvent-based methods historically used in that area.

C3CS90071AThis themed issue includes reviews focussing on both understanding the phenomenon itself (e.g., processes of mechanochemical bond breaking, the effects of mechanochemistry on the structures of materials, and factors underlying the molecular-level mechanisms), as well as the application of mechanochemistry to actual chemical synthesis, such as by grinding or milling.

Together with our guest editors, we hope this special issue of excellent Review Articles and Tutorial Reviews will serve as a consolidated overview to many of the most significant advances in the field.

Themed Issue: Stimuli responsive materials

We are delighted to present the Chem Soc Rev themed issue on stimuli responsive materials.

Guest editors Patrick Theato, Brent Sumerlin, Rachel O’Reilly and Thomas Epps III introduce the issue in their Editorial.

C3CS90057FMany applications in technology, biology, and society do benefit from materials with increased functionality and adaptability. As a result, according to Theato, Sumerlin, O’Reilly and Epps, materials science has rapidly evolved to meet these demands by enabling the preparation and increased fundamental understanding of responsive materials with adaptable properties and behaviours.
