Ten Years of Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B, and C !

When the Journal of Materials Chemistry became three separate titles in 2013, it represented a fantastic opportunity to grow the scope of the journal and provide dedicated homes for for all kinds of ground-breaking and impactful research.

In the ten years since then, the Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B, and C have published over 45,000 articles across the breadth of materials science, serving as high impact homes for research in the areas of energy and sustainability, biology and medicine, and optical, magnetic and electronic devices.

To celebrate the tenth anniversary, the JMCs will be publishing special anniversary issues, as well as many other celebrations on the journals’ Twitter and Facebook pages. To kick off the festivities, read the Editors-in-Chief’s introductory Editorial published in journals’ first issues of 2023.

Congratulations again to the past ten years of the Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B, and C, and we look forward to many more fantastic years in the future!

Congratulations to the 2022 Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship Winners

We would like to congratulate the recently announced winner of the 2022 Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship, as well as the two runner-up recipients. The Lectureship recognizes early career researchers who have made significant contributions within the field of materials chemistry, with nominations collected from the community and final winner selected by Advisory and Editorial board members from the Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B, and C.

The winner of the Lectureship receives £1,000 toward travel and accommodation costs to attend and present at a leading international meeting, as well as invitation to contribute to one of the Journal of Materials Chemistry journals and a complementary issue cover for the issue in which the article appears.

The winner of the 2022 Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship is Professor Sahika Inal, an Associate Professor of Bioengineering at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). Her research group explores the functionalities of organic electronic materials, ionic/electronic charge transport, and biologically-focused electronic devices.

 

We would also like to recognize the two runners-up for the 2022 Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship: Professor Luisa Whittaker-Brooks (University of Utah, USA) and Dr. Jessica Wade (Imperial College, UK).

 

 

Congratulations to Professor Inal, as well as Professor Whittaker-Brooks and Dr. Wade! To learn more about the winners, read their collected work published with the Royal Society of Chemistry, and find out about the nomination and selection process, follow the link to the 2022 Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship webpage.

Celebrating WesTEC 2022 with Dow Canada

The Royal Society of Chemistry was proud to again support and celebrate the 31st Western Canada Operations Technical Excellence Conference (WesTEC), hosted by Dow Chemical, which is also marking its 125th anniversary.

This year’s theme of “Mapping the Path2Zero,” highlights the essential role of companies in addressing climate change by moving towards a goal of net zero emissions. Dow has committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050, and has already unveiled their plans to build a first of its kind net zero carbon integrated ethylene cracker and derivatives site in Fort Saskatchewan. As in previous years, the 2022 WesTEC was an opportunity to highlight the outstanding work in this area being done at Dow Canada, and the Royal Society of Chemistry was glad to be a part of that recognition.

The Royal Society of Chemistry was thrilled to sponsor two awards at the 2022 WesTEC: Best Presentation: Nail Hagar, as well as Best Exhibit: Pabbi Grover and Jordan Gabert. Congratulations to all three winners!

Additionally, the Royal Society of Chemistry would like to congratulate Professor Emeritus Dr. Milton Lee of Brigham Young University, and previous member of Analytical Method‘s Editorial Board, for receiving the Distinguished External Leader in Science and Technology. Dr. Lee is pictured below with Dr. Jim Luong, R&D Fellow Dow Canada and current Analytical Methods Advisory Board member. Dr. Lee was honored at the 2022 WestTEC, where he delivered an award address to attendees sharing his wisdom gained throughout his distinguished career.
