Editor’s Choice Collection: Perovskite-based solar cells

We are delighted to announce a new Journal of Materials Chemistry A and Materials Advances Editor’s Choice Collection on perovskite-based solar cells from Prof. Zhiqun Lin.

Newly appointed Journal of Materials Chemistry A and Materials Advances Advisory Board member Zhiqun Lin (Georgia Institute of Technology, USA), who has recently come to the end of his time as an Associate Editor, has gathered together the journals’ most outstanding recent papers in perovskite-based photovoltaics for this Editor’s Choice collection.

In order to highlight developments in perovskite-based solar cells, this online collection includes recent manuscripts from Journal of Materials Chemistry A and Materials Advances on the topic.

Papers published in Materials Advances are gold open access and freely accessible. Those published in Journal of Materials Chemistry A are free to access until Friday 8 April 2022. You can read the full collection online here.

Congratulations to all authors featured and we hope you enjoy browsing this collection of articles selected by Zhiqun Lin. We are also pleased to highlight that Zhiqun Lin has recently been appointed to our sister journals, Nanoscale and Nanoscale Advances.

Special issue in honour of Daoben Zhu

We are pleased to introduce a themed issue in honour of Prof. Daoben Zhu, on the occasion of his 80th Birthday. This special issue of Journal of Materials Chemistry C is a tribute to one of the pioneers of organic solids in China.

As one of the pioneers of modern organic materials, Professor Zhu’s creativity as well as his contribution to organic solids has inspired many young scientists and has also had a significant effect on global research. His achievements have received prestigious international recognition including the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Chinese Chemical Society (2021), Outstanding Science and Technology Achievement Prize of Chinese Academy of Sciences (2018), Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (1997) and Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (2001).

Guest Edited by Qichun Zhang, Wenping Hu, Thuc-Quyen Nguyen, Qibing Pei and Jia Zhu, it is a great honour to highlight contributions from a number of Prof Zhu’s former students, co-workers and friends which cover the design and preparation of new organic conjugated materials, the study of structure–property relationships and their potential applications in important devices including photovoltaics, organic spintronics, organic magnetics, organic thermoelectrics, organic memristors, organic transistors, organic optics, organic batteries, sensors, and bio-applications.

 

We hope you enjoy reading this Journal of Materials Chemistry C special issue in honour of Prof. Daoben Zhu. A selection of papers are included below or you can access the full issue here.

Themed issue: In honour of Prof John Kilner


We are delighted to share with you a new Journal of Materials Chemistry A themed issue in honour of Prof John Kilner, on the occasion of his 75th birthday!

Click here to read the collection

During his long, productive career, John Kilner has made numerous seminal contributions to the broad field of Energy Materials, advancing the fundamental understanding of critical processes in solid state batteries and solid oxide cells, and in particular, pioneering the development of methods to directly measure the ionic transport of species in solids. His work has transformed our understanding of the kinetics of surface exchange and diffusion in solids, including the cation segregation process at surfaces, transport along and across grain boundaries, as well as the effect of strain on ion mobility. More recently, he has extended his work to provide unique insights into the development of Li conducting garnet type solid state electrolytes, including focusing on processing of these materials and understanding the impact of humidity on function and stability. We hope that you will join us in celebrating his achievements and continued contributions to the field.

We hope you enjoy reading this collection of papers in Journal of Materials Chemistry A in honour of John Kilner, and guest edited by Stephen Skinner, Viola Birss, Jennifer Rupp and Roger De Souza. A selection of papers can be found below, or you can access the full issue here.
