Professor Philip Mountford completes his final term as Chairman for Dalton Transactions

Professor Philip Mountford (University of Oxford) will complete his final term as Chairman of Dalton Transactions’ Editorial Board at the end of December this year.

Philip, Chairman of the Editorial Board since January 2012, has been a fantastic ambassador for the Journal, representing Dalton Transactions at many conferences around the world. He has overseen 4 Editorial Board meetings (including at the 2013 Royal Society of Chemistry Editors’ Symposium in Brussels), guest edited two themed issues (Advances in metal-catalysed polymerisation and related transformations, and Earth Abundant Element Compounds in Homogeneous Catalysis) and chaired the Editorial and Advisory Boards of Dalton Transactions during a period of significant expansion of the Journal’s published volume.

He leaves Dalton Transactions in a very strong position, with the Journal reporting its highest ever impact factor for 2014 (4.19) and publishing over 2000 articles a year – the only weekly international journal for inorganic, organometallic and bioinorganic chemistry.

A presentation for Philip Mountford

Philip’s work on the Journal was recognised at a presentation, held during one of his last engagements for Dalton Transactions – chairing the final session of the 2015 RSC Coordination and Organometallic Chemistry Discussion Group Meeting (Oxford, 3-4 September 2015), during which Professor Jason Love (University of Edinburgh) was the Dalton Transactions-sponsored Plenary lecturer.

This was an especially relevant meeting, as Philip is Head of Inorganic Chemistry and Professor of Organometallic Chemistry and Catalysis at Oxford.

Philip was presented with a framed portrait of John Dalton, the Journal’s namesake, as both a token of our appreciation and to commemorate the 250th anniversary of John Dalton’s birth. Philip was also presented with a Dalton Transactions mug featuring the cover image of the 2013 themed issue that he guest edited.

Philip Mountford and Jamie Humphrey

Among his numerous other important contributions and achievements during the past four years, Philip helped to celebrate the work of Dorothy Hodgkin, represented Dalton Transactions at its 4th International Symposium, and received the Schlenk Lectureship award in 2015.

Professor John Arnold (University of Berkeley, California) will succeed Philip as Chairman of the Editorial Board, from 1st January 2016.

“I am delighted that John Arnold will be taking over as Chair of the Editorial Board,” said Philip. “I know that under his leadership the board and editors will take the journal on from strength to strength. I have been very privileged to work with an outstanding group of professionals in the Dalton Transactions Editorial team and an equally talented and dedicated board.”

Thank you, Philip! We’ve been very privileged to work with you.
