Call for papers: Supramolecular Chirality in Self-organised Systems and Thin Films

Contribute to a new themed collection in Nanoscale Advances

We are delighted to announce an open call for papers to our new themed collection focusing on supramolecular chirality in self-organised systems and thin films.

Guest Editors: Professor Ludovico Valli, Professor Simona Bettini, and Professor Gabriele Giancane, all from University of Salento, Italy.

This collection aims to investigate the fascinating world of chiral self-organisation and its applications in various scientific fields. The collection explores the fundamental principles, theoretical models, and experimental techniques that contribute to the understanding of supramolecular chirality in self-organised systems and thin films and aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the current advancements and future prospects in this exciting field. Potential topics of this collection include but are not limited to:

  • Aggregation
  • Asymmetric synthesis
  • Asymmetry
  • Bio-applications of chiral structures
  • Chiral detection
  • Chiral medicines
  • Chirality
  • Chirality in everyday life: communications, cosmetics, fragrances, odours, tastes
  • Chiroptical spectroscopies
  • Host-guest recognition
  • Non-covalent interactions
  • Opto-electronic applications of chiral structures
  • Separation of enantiomers
  • Supramolecular chemistry
  • Supramolecular chirality
  • Theoretical features of chirality
  • Thin films of chiral substances: fabrication, characterization, and applications.

You are invited to submit any time before 31 July 2024.
