I am very pleased to introduce the very first articles published in Catalysis Science & Technology. All the efforts of our Associate Editors, authors and reviewers have helped us to reach this significant milestone in the launch of the journal.
This first selection of articles will be followed by more over the next couple of weeks, building up to the publication of the very first online issue of Catalysis Science & Technology in March 2011. All of these articles, indeed all articles published in 2011 and 2012, are free to access online. To arrange your free access, simply fill in the short online registration form and to view all the articles, visit the journal on the RSC Publishing Platform. I hope you enjoy reading these articles!
