ACS Earth and Space Chemistry welcomes your contribution to an upcoming Special Issue devoted to “Materials of the Universe: the Final Chemical Frontier.” This Special Issue aims to address grand questions of complex materials and the evolution of planets. This initiative brings together concepts in astrophysics, exoplanetary science, planetary science as well as exploration, mineralogy, and petrology, materials science and engineering, chemistry, physics, and biology.
Contributions from all STEM fields related to materials, methods, and technologies, especially those inspired by materials under extreme conditions beyond Earth (including experimental thermodynamics, first-principles calculations, geology, stellar and planetary observations, and data science approaches) are welcomed. We emphasize that extremes include high temperature, cryogenic conditions, high pressure, ultra-high vacuum, radiation fields, and far-from-equilibrium conditions.
Submission Deadline: August 31, 2020
