We are delighted to announce that the Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) themed issue Stability and properties of new-generation metal and metal-oxide clusters down to subnanometer scale is now online and free to access until the end of September 2023.
This collection brings together theory, fundamental-oriented research in vacuum and superfluid helium droplets, including metal clusters of astrochemical relevance, and the most applied-oriented research of metal and metal oxide clusters in solution, covering subnano- and nano-meter ranges.
Guest Edited by María Pilar de Lara-Castells, Cristina Puzzarini, Stefan Vajda, M. Arturo López-Quintela and Vlasta Bonacic-Koutecky, this collection reviews the latest advances in the field of metal and metal-oxide clusters, down to the subnanometer scale.
