In Honor of Professor Markku Leskelä

This virtual issue celebrates Professor Markku Leskelä (University of Helsinki, Finland) and his decades-long career in the field of Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD). Prof. Leskelä has been the most productive ALD researcher through the history of ALD, and in 2004 he was nominated as an ISI Highly Cited Author in the field of materials science. He directed the Finnish Centre of Excellence in Atomic Layer Deposition (2012-2017) and received the American Vacuum Society ALD Innovation award in 2012.

The papers selected for this virtual issue in honor of Prof. Markku Leskelä are in two sections: one half authored by him and his coworkers, and the other half of the papers were collected by inviting researchers active in ALD chemistry to nominate a paper of their own where they feel they have been influenced by Prof. Leskelä’s work. Some of Leskelä’s papers are old enough to have gained a great number of citations, some others are very recent that we believe will gain similar attention in the coming years. Besides his ALD publications, a small selection on luminescent materials and organometallic catalysts are included to give some flavor of Prof. Leskelä’s research interests and productivity outside ALD.

Peiying Hong is the 2019 Winner of the James J. Morgan ES&T Early Career Award

King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) Professor Peiying Hong is the recipient of the 2019 James J. Morgan Environmental Science & Technology Early Career Award. The James J. Morgan ES&T Early Career Award, named after the first Editor-in-Chief of Environmental Science & Technology, recognizes the contributions of early career researchers who have led the field in new directions through creative, new ideas consistent with Morgan’s early contributions in environmental chemistry.

Professor Hong is an Associate Professor in the Division of Biological and Environmental Science and Engineering at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). She received her Ph.D. in environmental science and engineering from the National University of Singapore in 2009. She took a postdoctoral fellowship at Department of Animal Science in University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign before joining KAUST in 2012 as an Assistant Professor. She was recently promoted to Associate Professor in July 2018. Professor Hong’s research in the field of environmental microbiology is characterized by her utilization and mastery of multidisciplinary technologies, spanning molecular biology, genomics, process engineering, and applied microbiology.

In 2019, the James J. Morgan ES&T Early Career Award will be presented at the ACS Spring 2019 National Meeting & Exposition in Orlando, Florida, where Professor Hong will give an invited talk. Recently, I had a chance to conduct a short interview with Professor Hong to learn more about her work.

What prompted you to study the field of Environmental Science and Engineering?

I am from Singapore, a country with no natural water resources but through innovations and research in water technologies, managed to achieve water sufficiency. I was and still am inspired by how this field can truly impact society. Back when I was still a teenager, I was acutely aware and concerned about the various environmental problems that need to be resolved – climate change, wastewater treatment, anthropogenic pollution, just to name a few. These are all motivations that prompted me to study the field of Environmental Science and Engineering in National University of Singapore. During my undergraduate studies, I was exposed to many different aspects of the field and was particularly fascinated by applied environmental microbiology as I see these microorganisms as both superheroes and supervillains depending on which microorganism we are talking about and the ecosystem they exist in.

What are the major challenges still facing this field?

 Global issues like water scarcities and climate change remain to be major challenges that are not easy to resolve. Because of the magnitude of these challenges, I believe only multifaceted, cross-disciplinary solutions can truly address these challenges in an impactful way. We might be making better progress in addressing water scarcities simply because many countries have now recognized that new technologies exist in expanding our water resources and enable them to close the water cycle loop. These success stories in certain countries create an optimism we could rely upon when addressing other major challenges facing this field. As long as we have the political will, technologies, and an open mindset, we can slowly but surely work towards addressing these challenges.

What advice would you give to upcoming researchers in the field?

 I believe it is important for us as researchers to first visualize the problem and needs, devise systematic approaches to understand the fundamental aspects of the problem and then demonstrate the appropriate applied solutions. It is important to keep an open mind when listening to seminars or presentations seemingly non-related to your field because you never know when an eureka moment would strike. I particularly enjoy those times when I get inspired by researchers working in other fields and when I was able to successfully integrate those ideas to my existing research.

 What does it mean to you to be awarded the 2019 James J. Morgan ES&T Early Career Award?

I am very honored to be awarded the 2019 James J. Morgan ES&T Early Career Award. Receiving this award allows me to express my gratitude to all the giants who allowed me to stand on their shoulders. They allowed me to reach high and move in big strides. These giants include KAUST who believed in me and my research directions, the mentors I met throughout my career who so graciously shared with me advice and guidance, and my team members who shared the same vision and passion as me.

Ernesto Carmona Feted as an Icon of Organometallic Chemistry

Organometallics celebrated the career of organometallic chemistry superstar Professor Ernesto Carmona of the Institute for Chemical Research (IIQ) at the University of Seville with a Special Issue on the occasion of his 70th birthday this year. Professor Carmona is an important figure in Spanish chemistry during the second half of the 20th century.

The Organometallics Special Issue is a collection of contributions from colleagues who have had some significant personal or scientific link with Carmona and depicts a broad panorama of the current state of the field of organometallic chemistry. In addition to the Special Issue, a symposium in Seville held on Oct. 24-25 was organized by some ofProfessor Carmona’s former students with some of his closest scientific colleagues acting as speakers.

An eloquent and informative editorial written by Professor Juan Cámpora, a Research Professor at IIQ who completed his Ph.D. under Professor Carmona’s supervision, describes the life and times of Professor Carmona and introduces Special Issue’s content. As Professor Cámpora relates, Professor Carmona received his Ph.D. at Seville during the formative years of the field of organometallic chemistry in the early 1970s. This period was known for the development of industrially important polymerization catalysts. Professor Carmona spent time as a postdoctoral researcher with Professor Geoffrey Wilkinson’s group at Imperial College London in the mid-1970s, just as Professor Wilkinson received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1973 for elucidating the structure and bonding in ferrocene, the molecule that effectively launched the field of organometallic chemistry.

Professor Carmona later went on to make early contributions to C–H activation chemistry, worked on multiple bonded transition-metal complexes, and carried out extensive studies on metallocene complexes. Much of this chemistry is described in more than 50 research papers published by Professor Carmona and his colleagues over the years in Organometallics, which launched in 1982. Professor Carmona has also served as an able administrator, helping to create several important Spanish research centers, including IIQ.

Professor Carmona often led projects to success by showing students the value of systematic and rigorous work carefully performed to the last detail, Cámpora writes. Yet, he never lost sight of the importance of the human qualities of humility and kindness in the pursuit of important objectives and had an uncanny way of galvanizing his coworkers to give their very best. “Everyone who has joined Ernesto’s projects, or has had the opportunity to collaborate with him in some task, knows how easy it is to be seduced by his kind manners and bonhomie, being rapidly induced to emulate him as much as one can,” Cámpora notes. “This is the key to understanding the way in which Ernesto Carmona has exerted his leadership: by sowing, little by little, admiration and love in each one who was fortunate enough to have this great person for reference in his or her everyday work.”

The cover of the Organometallics Special Issue, designed by Dr. Ivan Rivilla, is a profile of Professor Carmona against the façade of the main building of the University of Seville, formerly a Spanish Royal Tobacco Factory. The first three windows on the right side of the ground floor once housed his office and labs. The stream of chemical structures overlaid on the figure represent milestones of Carmona’s career, from homoleptic Mn(II) alkyls he synthesized as a postdoc under Professor Wilkinson to some of his recent achievements, including cincocene and a quintuply-bonded µ-arene Mo2 complex. For the Special Issue, Organometallics altered its familiar magenta logo to feature Professor Carmona favorite colors, bright red and white of the Seville Football Club, as the sport is a passion of Professor Carmona’s that is only second to chemistry. Professor Cámpora (left in the photo) and Organometallics Editor-in-Chief Professor Paul Chirik (right) presented a framed copy of the cover to Professor Carmona during the Seville symposium.

Presenting for Your Audience: How Do You Make an Audience Comfortable?

Creating an environment where your audience feels comfortable understanding the science (and asking questions when they don’t) is part of the presentation process.
In this video, Commonwealth Professor of Chemistry at the University of Virginia and Associate Editor of ACS Catalysis, T. Brent Gunnoe, Ph.D., lays out a framework for the perfect presentation. The key is to develop a presentation style that the audience feels comfortable communicating with you.
“The only way for the audience to have a complete understanding of the topic is if they feel free to ask questions,” Gunnoe says.
Jackie Fries, Ph.D., Laboratory Director at AltMed and Plants of Ruskin, Organic LettersMost Read Author 2016, says that it’s important that your audience knows that science is a work in progress. Just because the research hints at future application, doesn’t mean that it’s viable just yet.

ChemRxiv: Year One and Beyond

Last August, ChemRxiv was launched with the goal to become the world’s premier preprint server focused on the chemical sciences, and what a year it has been! This spring, the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), and the German Chemical Society (Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker, GDCh) joined the American Chemical Society (ACS) as co-owners.

This three-society group provides experience and expertise in meeting authors’ needs and is well-positioned to provide strong governance for ChemRxiv in addition to promoting the chemical sciences around the globe. ChemRxiv has attracted more than 450 different submitting authors (who posted over 500 original preprints and more than 200 revisions) and readers from 40 different countries.

These preprints are being developed into full research publications and are now appearing in top journals, including ACS Central Science, Angewandte Chemie, Chemical Science, Nature, and Science, underscoring the excellent quality of the submissions to ChemRxiv. Just as impressive are the readers’ responses, with preprints read more than 500,000 times in this first year.

 

The strong vision to provide a premier preprint service tailored to chemists has resulted in this already robust support. ChemRxiv chose Figshare as its service provider to deliver a modern interface and ability to both host and interactively display data natively within the browser.

The authors and readers of ChemRxivhave made good use of these features by uploading crystal structures, computational files, videos, and more that can be processed and manipulated without the need for specialized software. ChemRxiv accepts all data types from authors—removing the limitations imposed by PDF and Word— providing a richer, more valuable reading experience for users. Since launch, a number of new features have been added, including a “Follow” feature, which allows readers to create notifications and RSS feeds based on precise search criteria, and an interactive citation-formatting tool. The automated scans for plagiarism, viruses

Since launch, a number of new features have been added, including a “Follow” feature, which allows readers to create notifications and RSS feeds based on precise search criteria, and an interactive citation-formatting tool. The automated scans for plagiarism, viruses, and malware, as well as improvements to the curation tools allow triage before posting to be quick, in fewer than two business days, and often in less than one day! Several new features will be available with the next release, including an interactive search widget to the “Funding” field. All of this, plus positive user feedback and the establishment of our global three-society governance, means that ChemRxiv is moving from the beta stage to a full-service resource.
