PCCP Bunsentagung 2020: Understanding Dispersion Interactions in Molecular Chemistry themed collection now online!
We are delighted to announce that the Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) themed collection Bunsentagung 2020: Understanding Dispersion Interactions in Molecular Chemistry is now online and free to access until the end of August 2021.
Bunsentagung 2020 focuses on dispersion interactions and their multifold manifestations in chemistry. Dispersion is the driving force for molecular aggregation that plays a key role in the thermodynamic stability of (meta)stable structures, molecular recognition, chemical selectivity through transition-state stabilization, protein folding, enzyme catalysis, and many more. Despite the pioneering work of London and others in the 1930s, our understanding of dispersion interactions only recently has become much better.
Guest Edited by Professor Jürgen Janek, Professor Peter R. Schreiner and Professor Martin A. Suhm, this collection highlights the progress in a rapidly developing field encompassing both experiment and theory. We hope you enjoy reading the articles. Please get in touch if you have any questions about this themed collection or PCCP.
