Open Call for Papers: Circularly Polarised Luminescence

Circularly Polarised Luminescence (CPL):

Chirality is a basic property of Nature and plays an important role in the Universe (homochirality of living systems). Chiral materials are also widely used in many areas, such as medicines and chemical reagents, catalysts, and emitters. Interestingly, chiral emitters can display circularly polarized luminescence (CPL) which is the difference of left- and right-circularly polarized light components from chiral compounds and has recently revealed many fundamental interests and potential applications. The increasing recent interest of CPL technique is attributed to instrumental development, enabling development of strongly CPL-active chiral materials or systems, and to its application in many research areas such as in bio-responsive systems and for the development of smart materials for advanced photonic and electronic technologies (quantum computing, optical data storage and 3D displays, etc).

The aim of this themed collection is to bring together cutting-edge original articles regarding the synthesis, preparation and characterization, the theoretical simulations, the circular dichroism (CD) and CPL measurements of chiral molecules or systems including organic, inorganic materials and supramolecular aggregates with fluorescence, thermally activated delayed fluorescence, phosphorescence and long after-glow properties. Furthermore, the application of these materials in organic light-emitting diode (OLED), etc., are particularly welcome. The themed collection will provide a guidance for the future rational design of chiral molecules or systems suitable for various CPL properties and applications.

We encourage submission of CPL studies on all types of chiral molecules or systems, in form of reviews or of research papers. Both experimental, theoretical and combinations works are welcome.

Submissions to the journal should contain chemistry in a materials context and should fit within the scope of Journal of Materials Chemistry C. Please see the journal’s website for more information on the journal’s scope, standards, article types and author guidelines.

If you are interested in contributing to this themed collection, please submit through the online submission system for Journal of Materials Chemistry C

Any questions, please get in touch with the Editorial Office by email.


Please add a “note to the editor” in the submission form when you submit your manuscript to say that this is a submission for the themed collection. The Editorial Office and Guest Editors reserve the right to check suitability of submissions in relation to the scope of the collection and inclusion of accepted articles in the collection is not guaranteed. All manuscripts will be subject to the journal’s usual peer review process. Accepted manuscripts will be added to the collection as soon as they are online, and they will be published in a regular issue of Journal of Materials Chemistry C.
