We are delighted to announce that the Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) themed collection New Perspectives on Molecular Simulation of Chemistry and Physics in External Electric Fields is now online and free to access until mid-May 2023.
The timely topic of external electric fields in molecular simulation, with a focus on the emergent theme of handling chemical reactions is expected to stimulate discussion and offer insights into external field manipulation of chemical reactions, including experimental studies into microscopic fundamentals.
Guest Edited by Niall English, Maria Gracheva, Peter Kusalik and Sason Shaik, this collection aims to bring together the progress made in this fast-moving field over the past 10 years, to provide an invaluable resource to anyone working in this area.
