Chem Soc Rev Emerging Investigator Lectureship: Xile Hu

Professor Xile Hu, of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, was the winner of the Chem Soc Rev Emerging Investigator Lectureship 2013

Professor Hu chose to give his award lecture at the recent EUCHEM Conference on Organic Free Radicals, which took place at the end of June. He was also presented with his Emerging Investigator certificate at the event.

Chris Barner-Kowollik (KIT) presents Xile Hu with his Emerging Investigator award certificate

Congratulations again to Professor Hu! 

The Emerging Investigator Lectureship is an annual award which recognises an emerging scientist who has made a significant contribution to their research field.  Nominations for the 2015 award will open later in the year – watch this space.

Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) Themed Issue

We are excited to introduce the new Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) themed issue of Chem Soc Rev.

The area of MOFs has become one of the fastest growing fields in chemistry, and this special issue is dedicated to the topic. It follows on from the well-received 2009 issue of Chem Soc Rev on the same theme.

Read the editorial by the guest editors Susumu Kitagawa and Hong-Cai “Joe” Zhou, and then browse the issue:

Metal-Organic Frameworks
Chemical Society Reviews, Issue 16, 2014

If you are attending the MOF2014 conference in Japan later in the year, you may be interested to know that all delegates will receive a free USB flash drive containing a copy of the whole MOFs themed issue.

We hope you enjoy reading it!
