Chem Soc Rev Editorial Board: Exciting Changes

We are pleased to announce some exciting new appointments to the Chem Soc Rev Editorial Board

Phil Gale

After 3 years, Professor Dirk Guldi has retired from his position as Chair of the Chem Soc Rev Editorial Board. We would like to sincerely thank Dirk for his dedication and hard work, and we wish him the very best for his new role as Associate Editor for Nanoscale – we are pleased he will be staying within the ‘RSC family’!

We are delighted to announce that Professor Philip A. Gale has been appointed as the new Editorial Board Chair. Phil has been on the Chem Soc Rev Editorial Board since 2005, acting as both a Commissioning Editor and most recently as Associate Editor for supramolecular chemistry.

Phil is the Head of Chemistry at the University of Southampton, UK and his research interests focus on the supramolecular chemistry of anionic species and in particular the molecular recognition, sensing and lipid bilayer transport of anionic species.

David Amabilino

We are also pleased to appoint Professor David Amabilino as a new Associate Editor. David has been on the Editorial Board for over 3 years and will now be handling submissions in the areas of supramolecular chemistry, macrocyclic chemistry, self-assembly, chirality and stereochemistry.

David is Research Professor and Vice-Director at the Materials Science Institute of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC), Spain.  He directs a dedicated group of young researchers from different cultural and scientific backgrounds working on key problems in stereochemistry, self-assembly on and off surfaces, and molecular (nano)materials.


Chem Soc Rev now has three Associate Editors handling submissions to the journal:

  • David Amabilino (ICMAB) – supramolecular chemistry, macrocycles, self-assembly, chirality  and stereochemistry
  • Douglas Stephan (University of Toronto) – Inorganic chemistry
  • Zhong-Qun Tian (Xiamen University) – Physical chemistry
