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:
UO-industry collaboration points to improved nanomaterials
A potential path to identify imperfections and improve the quality of nanomaterials for use in next-generation solar cells has emerged from a collaboration of University of Oregon and industry researchers.
Chemist builds device to measure chemical warfare agent effects on surfaces
(Phys.org) —For the last five years, the research group in the laboratory of John Morris, professor of analytical chemistry, has been doing something no group has done before – they have engineered, designed, and built ...
Ionic liquid boosts efficiency of CO2 reduction catalyst
(Phys.org) —Wouldn't it be nice to use solar- or wind-generated electricity to turn excess carbon dioxide—one of the gases trapping heat in Earth's atmosphere—into fuels and other useful chemicals? The process would ...
Graphene-boron mix shows promise for lithium-ion batteries
Frustration led to revelation when Rice University scientists determined how graphene might be made useful for high-capacity batteries.
Researchers develop method to inkjet print highly conductive, bendable layers of graphene
(Phys.org) —Imagine a bendable tablet computer or an electronic newspaper that could fold to fit in a pocket.
Special microscope captures defects in nanotubes
University of Oregon chemists have devised a way to see the internal structures of electronic waves trapped in carbon nanotubes by external electrostatic charges.
Unlocking secrets of new solar material
(Phys.org) —A new solar material that has the same crystal structure as a mineral first found in the Ural Mountains in 1839 is shooting up the efficiency charts faster than almost anything researchers have seen before—and ...
Better remote-sensing explosive detectors: The beginning of the end of full-body scanners?
Standing in a full-body scanner at an airport isn't fun, and the process adds time and stress to a journey. It also raises privacy concerns. Researchers now report in ACS' The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters a more ...
Engineer making rechargeable batteries with layered nanomaterials
(Phys.org)—A Kansas State University researcher is developing more efficient ways to save costs, time and energy when creating nanomaterials and lithium-ion batteries.
Membranes contain beautiful patterns—but their function is a mystery
Biological cells are surrounded by a membrane, and here some of the most important processes for sustaining life take place. There can also be something very beautiful happening in membranes, researchers from the University ...
