Journal of Materials Chemistry A call for papers: Single-Atom Catalysis

Journal of Materials Chemistry A is delighted to announce a call for papers for its latest themed collection 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.

In this context, it is pertinent to compile this themed issue centering on recent rapid development in the field of SACs. To this end, this themed collection of Journal of Materials Chemistry A aims at providing 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.

This call for papers is open for the following article types:
• Communications
• Full papers

Submission Deadline: 27th September 2021

If you would like to contribute to this themed issue, you can submit your article directly through the journal’s online submission service at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jmchema. 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 issue. 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 issue is not guaranteed.

Guest edited by Fabio Biscarini (University of Modena and Reggio Emilia), Eugenio Coronado (University of Valencia), Anna Painelli (University of Parma) and Masahiro Yamashita (Tohoku University), this issue aims to illustrate the current relevance of functional molecular materials in electronics and magnetism. This covers from the chemical design and manipulation of novel molecular materials with unprecedented control over their properties, even at the single-molecule level, to the possibilities opened by exploiting the unique features of these molecular systems in emerging fields such as bioelectronics and molecular spintronics.

This issue is a tribute to Jaume Veciana and Concepció Rovira, from the Institut de Ciencia dels Materials de Barcelona (Spain), in occasion of their 70th birthdays. Their intense work as chemists and materials scientists has led to seminal contributions in diverse areas of molecular electronics and magnetism.
