Yi-Tao Long joins Chemical Science as an Associate Editor

We are delighted to announce that Professor Yi-Tao Long has joined Chemical Science as an Associate Editor.

Yi-Tao is a Professor of Analytical Chemistry at Nanjing University in China. He received his B.S. in Chemistry at Shandong University in 1989 and his Ph.D. under the supervision of Professor Hongyuan Chen from Nanjing University in 1998. After undertaking two-year postdoctoral studies at Heidelberg University, Yi-Tao worked at the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Alberta in Canada for over five years. Following one more year of research at UC Berkeley, he started his independent career at the East China University of Science and Technology in 2007.

Yi-Tao’s research interests focus on the development of new electrochemical measurement methods to reveal the characteristics and dynamics of single entities. This involves nanopore single molecule electroanalysis, biointerface spectroelectrochemistry and integrated biosensors.

Yi-Tao looks forward to receiving cutting-edge submissions that lead to the frontiers of analytical science and electrochemistry.

Below is a selection of articles published in Chemical Science which Yi-Tao would like to highlight – all free to read! We hope you enjoy them.

Serena DeBeer joins Chemical Science as an Associate Editor

We are delighted to announce that Professor Serena DeBeer has joined Chemical Science as an Associate Editor.

Serena is a Professor and Director at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany. She is also an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Cornell University, an honorary faculty member at Ruhr University in Bochum, and the group leader of the PINK Beamline at the Energy Materials In‐Situ Laboratory at Helmholtz Zentrum in Berlin. She received her B.S. in Chemistry at Southwestern University in 1995 and her Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2002. From 2002-2009, she was a staff scientist at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory, before moving to her faculty position at Cornell.

Serena’s research interests lie in the development and application of advanced X-ray spectroscopic tools for understanding processes in biological, heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis. This includes advances to X-ray spectroscopy techniques as well as applications focused on understanding electronic structural changes in catalytic processes such as N2 reduction, CH4 oxidation, H2O oxidation and H2 production.

Serena looks forward to receiving submissions in the areas of (bio)inorganic chemistry, heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis and spectroscopy.

Below is a selection of articles published in Chemical Science which Serena would like to highlight – all free to read! We hope you enjoy them.
