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
Smaller is better for nanotube analysis
In a great example of "less is more," Rice University scientists have developed a powerful method to analyze carbon nanotubes in solution.
Graphene as a front contact for silicon-perovskite tandem solar cells
Silicon absorbers primarily convert the red portion of the solar spectrum very effectively into electrical energy, whereas the blue portions are partially lost as heat. To reduce this loss, the silicon cell can be combined ...
Light does not have to be a (rapid) killer of chemical molecules
Chemical molecules strongly interacting with light generally disintegrate very rapidly. At the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, the main mechanism conducive to this destruction ...
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.
NSLS-II scientists find flexible boundary between phases of matter within supercritical fluids
Imagine a planet, a gas giant like Jupiter. The biggest planet in our Solar System is composed mainly of helium and hydrogen, which make up a thick atmosphere above a molten rocky core. But where does the surface begin and ...
Buckybomb shows potential power of nanoscale explosives
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 ...
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, ...
Chemical engineers outline new approach to materials design
A novel approach that should "significantly accelerate materials discovery" is the subject of a new article in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters .
