It has been an eventful twelve months at Dalton Transactions as we approach the end of our 40th anniversary celebration year. One of the highlights of course was the publication of Issue 40 Volume 40, Dalton Transactions 40th Anniversary, which bought together world class research in the field of inorganic chemistry, this can be accessed along with the other 2011 themed issues here. There were also numerous conferences, symposia, colloquia, meetings and seminars from around the world on topics covering every aspect of inorganic chemistry.
It would be impossible to list the phenomenal chemical advances we have seen in Dalton Transactions over the year but I can direct you to our ‘Hot Articles’ for some bite-size pieces and you can also check out some interesting reviews.
As a Christmas read I have also put together a very small assortment of interesting reviews published throughout the year.
