Part. Syst. Charact. and Current Nanoscience. His recent awards include the Chem. Soc. Rev. Emerging Investigator Award (2010) and the Roy-Somiya Medal of the International Solvothermal and Hydrothermal Association (ISHA) (2010).
Why did you choose Materials Horizons to publish your exciting work?
I chose Materials Horizons for this Communication because this journal is a totally new flagship materials science journal launched by a very experienced publisher. I believe that our results published in this emerging journal will receive more exposure and broad attention in the community.
How did you find the Materials Horizons publication process?
The publishing and reviewing process was faster and highly efficient.
What topics would you like to see covered in future issues of Materials Horizons?
I think some coverage of advances in synthetic methodologies of functional nanomaterials, self-assembly and processing of nanoscale building blocks and their practical applications in diverse fields.
Shu-Hong Yu’s Communication article A shape-memory scaffold for macroscale assembly of functional nanoscale building blocks will appear in Issue 1 of Materials Horizons, and is free to access online!
