Letter articles changing to Communication articles

New Journal of Chemistry publishes a range of manuscript types, including concise articles that report results of immediate interest to the chemistry community. Manuscripts of this type are currently called “Letter”. After reviewing this article type, the New Journal of Chemistry Editorial Board agreed to change the name of these articles to “Communication”. This aligns New Journal of Chemistry with other Royal Society of Chemistry journals and the Editorial Board hope this change will reduce any confusion for our authors and readers. The manuscript description, editorial standards and process are not changing. These can be found here.

 

This change will apply to manuscripts published in NJC from Issue 1, 2021 (Volume 45). Authors seeking to submit a manuscript on or after November 16, 2020, will no longer have the option to submit a Letter, and will instead be given the option to submit a Communication.

 

For any questions, please contact the NJC editorial team using the links on the journal webpage.

Welcome to Professor Karine Philippot Our new Associate Editor

We are delighted to introduce the newest member of the NJC Editorial Board: Professor Karine Philippot!

NJC Associate Editor Karine Philippot Royal Society of Chemistry

 

Karine is the research director at CNRS, at the Laboratory of Coordination Chemistry in Toulouse (LCC-Toulouse), where she is also head of the group “Engineering of Metal Nanoparticles”. She studied biochemistry and then organometallic chemistry at the University of Rennes in Pr P.H. Dixneuf’s group. After a PhD degree in molecular chemistry and homogeneous catalysis from the University of Toulouse (1993) she had a postdoctoral position in the Department of Catalysis at Rhodia-Lyon (1994-95). Afterwards she was appointed a CNRS permanent researcher in the group of B. Chaudret at the LCC-Toulouse in 1996, and became a group leader at the same institute in 2008.

Her current research interests cover the design of metal nanoparticles and composite nanomaterials by applying the concepts of molecular chemistry together with their application, mainly in colloidal or supported catalysis and in energy production.

1st International Conference on Noncovalent Interactions

ICNI 2019, 1st International Conference on Noncovalent Interactions

 

Have you read our cross-journal web collection celebrating the 1st International Conference on Noncovalent Interactions yet? With articles from CrystEngComm, Dalton Transactions, New Journal of Chemistry,  RSC Advances, Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, Chemical Science, ChemComm and more, this collection is not one to miss!

READ NOW

Noncovalent interactions (hydrogen, aerogen, halogen, chalcogen, pnictogen, tetrel and icosagen bonds, as well as cation-π, anion-π, lone pair-π, π-π stacking, agostic, pseudo-agostic, anagostic, dispersion-driven, lipophilic, etc.) concern weak forces of attraction formed between different molecules (intermolecular) or fragments of the same molecule (intramolecular). While these weak interactions were firstly taken into consideration by van der Waals in 1873, the understanding of their crucial role in synthesis, catalysis, crystal engineering, pharmaceutical design, molecular biology, molecular recognition, materials, etc. has been increasingly explored in the last few decades.

Thus, it is timely to establish a general/regular series of International Conferences on Noncovalent Interactions (ICNI), the first of which is to be held on 2-6 September 2019 in Lisbon. The conference aims to bring together scientists from around the world working on this field in order to exchange ideas, discuss recent advances and future directions/plans.

Guest-Edited by Kamran T Mahmudov and Armando J L Pombeiro, this collection brings together previous papers as well as new articles celebrating noncovalent interactions. Remember to check back regularly to see our latest articles up to and after the conference takes place!
