We are delighted to announce that the Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) Emerging Investigators 2021 themed collection is now online and free to access until the end of September 2022.
The collection brings together excellent research carried out around the world by early career scientists in physical chemistry, chemical physics and biophysical chemistry. As outstanding researchers in the early stages of their independent careers, each contributor was nominated for the PCCP Emerging Investigator Lectureship and invited to contribute to this themed collection by the Editorial Board.
We congratulate those whose work is featured and hope you enjoy reading their contributions.
