Early Stage Investigator Honorees of the ACS Polymeric Materials Science & Engineering Division
Guest edited by Emily Pentzer and Luis Campos
We are delighted to present to you this special collection, a collaboration between the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and the American Chemical Society (ACS), aiming to highlight the outstanding work of those who were honoured recently by the ACS Polymeric Materials Science and Engineering (PMSE) division as Early Career Investigators.
This collection in Materials Advances features diverse work from these rising stars, aiming to provide an inclusive, open access and interdisciplinary home for quality polymeric materials research. Both the ACS and RSC are dedicated to supporting this community through publishing, awards, and events.
We hope that readers will enjoy learning about the breadth of research occurring in polymeric materials from reading these papers, with topics ranging from battery applications to biosensing, and develop new ideas for utilizing these transformative materials.
