Call For Papers: Metal nanoclusters

Call For Papers: Metal nanoclusters

Guest edited by Sukhendu Mandal, Yuichi Negishi, Di Sun and Anindita Das

We are delighted to announce a call for papers for our latest online themed collection in Nanoscale on metal nanoclusters that is being guest edited by Professor Sukhendu Mandal (IISER Thiruvananthapuram, India), Professor Yuichi Negishi (Tokyo University of Science, Japan), Professor Di Sun (Shandong University, China) and Professor Anindita Das (South Methodist University, USA).

Metal nanoclusters open call for papers promotional graphic. Includes photos of the guest editors Sukhendu Mandal, Yuichi Negishi, Di Sun and Anindita Das. Open for submissions until 1 July 2024.

Atomically precise metal nanoclusters are novel materials that have the potential to address everyday needs from energy to health. Luminescent metal clusters can be used for effective and efficient energy harvesting and conversion technologies, while water-soluble luminescent metal clusters offer more efficient and personalized biomedical approaches. Furthermore, nanoclusters can be used as building units to form higher-dimensional cluster-assembled materials and can modulate the optoelectronic properties of desired device materials. To create a hierarchy of structures and applications, a fundamental understanding of the structure-property relationship at the atomic level is vital.

This special collection aims to look at new structures, photophysical, chemical and electrochemical catalysis reactions, and structure-property correlations within the themes of atomically precise metal nanoclusters. We wish to highlight research communicating novel structures, properties and phenomena, where applications for societal needs are appreciated as well as reports of new and exciting basic science. Prospective topics include but are not limited to:

  • New nanocluster structures
  • Transformation reactions
  • Luminescent materials
  • Light-matter interactions
  • Catalysis
  • Electrocatalysis
  • Bio-imaging and sensing
  • Drug delivery
  • Optoelectronic devices
  • New techniques for characterization

This call for papers is open for the following article types:

  • Communications
  • Full papers

Open for submissions until 1 July 2024

If you would like to contribute to this themed collection, you can submit your article directly through the Nanoscale online submission system. Please mention that this submission is an open call contribution to the metal nanoclusters collection in the “Themed issues” section of the submission form and add a “Note to the Editor” that this is from the Open Call. The Editorial Office reserves the right to check suitability of submissions in relation to the scope of both the journal and the collection, and inclusion of accepted articles in the final themed issue is not guaranteed.

Please also note that all submissions will undergo our normal rigorous peer review processes including an initial assessment prior to peer review, and that peer review and acceptance are not guaranteed.

If you have any questions about the journal or the collection, then Edward Gardner, the Development Editor for Nanoscale, would be happy to answer them. You can contact him by emailing the journal inbox.

With best wishes,

Professor Sukhendu Mandal (IISER Thiruvananthapuram, India)
Professor Yuichi Negishi (Tokyo University of Science, Japan)
Professor Di Sun (Shandong University, China)
Professor Anindita Das (South Methodist University, USA)
