Journal of Materials Chemistry is a peer-reviewed scientific journal publishing original (primary) research and review articles on the applications, properties and synthesis of exciting new materials. Journal of Materials Chemistry is published weekly by the Royal Society of Chemistry. The editor of Journal of Materials Chemistry is Liz Davies. Journal of Materials Chemistry has an impact factor of 4.795 (2010). Journal of Materials Chemistry publishes the following types of articles: Research Papers (original scientific work); Communications (original scientific work that is of an urgent nature); Feature articles (reviews highlighting areas of special excitement and progress); Highlights (short review articles) ; and Applications (review articles covering the applications and properties of a class of materials). Feature articles, Highlights and Applications are written by special invitation of the Editor or Editorial Board only.
Physicists create new nanoparticle for cancer therapy
A University of Texas at Arlington physicist working to create a luminescent nanoparticle to use in security-related radiation detection may have instead happened upon an advance in photodynamic cancer therapy.
Chemists discover new way to stabilize proteins
(Phys.org) —A UConn research team has found a way to stabilize hemoglobin, the oxygen carrier protein in the blood, a discovery that could lead to the development of stable vaccines and affordable artificial blood substitutes.
Chlorophyll harnessed for use in nanophotonic applications
Researchers from Aalto University and the University of Helsinki are developing nanostructures in which chlorophylls are bound to synthetic materials. Chlorophyll is a true gift of nature to photonics, as it absorbs the wavelengths ...
