The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters is a scientific journal published by the American Chemical Society. It was designed to complement the Journal of Physical Chemistry. The editor-in-chief is George C. Schatz (Northwestern University). The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters will cover the following topic areas:
Macroscopic quantum phenomena discovered in ice
Researchers calculate electrical properties of carbon cones, other shapes
Flexing graphene may be the most basic way to control its electrical properties, according to calculations by theoretical physicists at Rice University and in Russia.
Investigating metal-organic frameworks as clean-up agents for nuclear waste
One of the most versatile and widely applicable classes of materials being studied today are the metal-organic frameworks. These materials, known as MOFs, are characterized by metal ions or metal-ion clusters that are linked ...
Buckybomb shows potential power of nanoscale explosives
Researchers observe how nanoparticles grow when exposed to helium
A team of researchers from the University of Leicester and France's G2ELab-CNRS in Grenoble have for the first time observed the growth of free nanoparticles in helium gas in a process similar to the decaffeination of coffee, ...
What makes Champagne bubbly?
Project for computational screening of molecules could accelerate electrolyte discovery
A new breakthrough battery—one that has significantly higher energy, lasts longer, and is cheaper and safer—will likely be impossible without a new material discovery. And a new material discovery could take years, if ...
Machine learning algorithm makes impossible screening of advanced materials possible
Unlikely hydrogen bond discovered
As with magnets and alternating current, positively charged molecules never aim for one another. Indeed, similarly charged poles are repelled. Nevertheless, a team from the University of Copenhagen's Department of Chemistry ...
