HOT articles from 10th anniversary themed issue of Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry

A collection of the HOT articles in OBC’s upcoming 10th anniversary themed issue

After much anticipation the themed issue marking the 10th anniversary of Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry will be published this week, and it’s a bumper issue full of work from many at the forefront of current research who have continued contribute to the success of OBC over the past decade.

Ahead of the issue’s publication we have prepared a FREE collection of all the HOT articles that can be found within its covers, and considering all the talent that has contributed it is quite a big collection. These will all be free to access until the end of July.
