ACS Applied Energy Materials is celebrating the publication of its inaugural issue. All articles within Volume 1, Issue 1 are freely available to read until December 31st 2018, and can be explored here.
In his introductory editorial, Deputy Editor Gerald J. Meyer, Ph.D. explains, “practical advances in ‘energy’ have emerged as one of the greatest challenges of our generation… ACS Applied Energy Materials will indeed become the medium for communication of the most impactful energy advances to our international scientific community.”
Professor Meyer selected the following articles as particular highlights within the issue
Microporous Titania Crystals with Penta-oxygen Coordination
ACS Appl. Energy Mater., 2018, 1 (1), pp 22–26
Photocathode Chromophore–Catalyst Assembly via Layer-By-Layer Deposition of a Low Band-Gap Isoindigo Conjugated Polyelectrolyte
ACS Appl. Energy Mater., 2018, 1 (1), pp 62–67
Compositional Engineering To Improve the Stability of Lead Halide Perovskites: A Comparative Study of Cationic and Anionic Dopants
ACS Appl. Energy Mater., 2018, 1 (1), pp 181–190
Meyer is Professor & Vice Chair of Diversity, as well as the Deputy Director of the DOE Energy Frontier Research Center on Solar Fuels, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His research there focuses on experimental investigations of photodriven electron and energy transfer in inorganic coordination compounds and extended solids.
Professor Meyer has served as an Associate Editor of ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces since 2012. He has served on the Editorial Advisory Boards for Langmuir, Inorganic Chemistry, Chemistry of Materials, and The Journal of Physical Chemistry .
The journal publishes broadly in the area of materials for energy generation, storage, conversion, and sustainability, with a focus on research that reports novel applications of materials and devices.
