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.

Note:

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.

Themed collection on Stability of Optoelectronic Materials and Devices

Journal of Materials Chemistry C is delighted to announce a call for papers for its latest themed collection on “Stability of Optoelectronic Materials and Devices” Guest Edited by: Yana Vaynzof (Technical University of Dresden), Zhuoying Chen (ESPCI Paris/CNRS/Sorbonne Université/Université PSL) and Dinesh Kabra (Indian Institute of Technology Bombay).

Emerging optoelectronic materials are under intense scrutiny both in terms of their fundamental properties and application in a range of electronic devices. These include, among others, organic materials, quantum dots, metal halide perovskites, metal oxides, 2D materials. These materials have already found application in solar cells, light-emitting diodes, field-effect transistors, photodetectors, lasers and many more. While the function and performance of these devices are highly important, their stability also needs to be addressed if these technologies are to find their way to industrial applications. In this themed collection, we focus on the latest insights regarding the fundamental mechanisms of material degradation, the study of active-material/device stability and the development of mitigation strategies both in terms of chemical design and device architecture engineering.

This call for papers is open for the following article types:

  • Communications
  • Full papers

Submission Deadline: 30th September 2022

If you would like to contribute to this themed collection, you can submit your article directly through the journal’s online submission service at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jmchemc. Please add a “note to the editor” in the submission form when uploading your files to say that this is a contribution to the themed collection. The Editorial Office reserves the right to check suitability of submissions in relation to the scope of the collection, and inclusion of accepted articles in the final themed collection is not guaranteed.

Journal of Materials Chemistry A: themed issue on single-atom catalysis

We are delighted to present this Journal of Materials Chemistry A themed issue on single-atom catalysis, guest edited by Zhiqun Lin (Georgia Institute of Technology, USA), Maria Escudero Escribano (University of Copenhagen, Denmark) and Jun Li (Tsinghua University, China).

Single-atom catalysts (SACs) with isolated metal atoms dispersed on solid supports have emerged as a new frontier in catalysis science owing to their great potential to bridge the gap between heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis. The active centers of this new class of materials possess unique electronic structure and unsaturated coordination environments, which have been proven to improve catalytic activity in a variety of reactions. Moreover, the homogeneity in the active sites and geometric structure of SACs, which show similarities to their homogeneous catalyst analogs, afford them a great potential to enhance selectivity because of similar spatial and electronic interactions to substrates.

To this end, this themed collection of Journal of Materials Chemistry A aims to provide a platform for recent developments in this rapidly evolving field of SACs including synthetic strategies, selectivity regulation, theoretical understanding of the catalytic activity and stability, single-atom alloy, support effect, and novel applications in electrocatalysis, photocatalysis, photoelectrocatalysis, selective hydrogenation, and other fields. We hope that readers find this themed collection informative and useful.

All of the articles in the collection are free to access until 18 April 2022. A selection of articles from the issue is provided below.
