ACS holds a long track record at the forefront of scientific research, publishing high quality work that drives innovation and advancement across and beyond the chemical sciences. This is especially true in the field of nanotechnology: according to Google Scholar’s list of top publications, ACS Nano and Nano Letters lead the field at positions #1 and #2 respectively, with ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces not far behind in position #4*.

We are excited to meet with members of this exciting and growing community during the 8th International Conference on Nanoscience and Technology, China – commonly know as ChinaNano 2019 – held in Beijing, August 17–19, 2019.

We hope you will join us for the ACS Nano Lectureship Award on Sunday August 18, 08:30 – 13:00, to hear from this year’s winners; Professor Naomi Halas (Rice University), Professor Bin Liu (National University of Singapore), and Professor Jamie Warner (University of Oxford). The Award Lectures will be immediately followed by the ACS Publications Reception, 13:00 – 15:00, and both events are set to be fantastic opportunities to hear from and network with leaders in the field.

A number of ACS Editors will be presenting their science during ChinaNano. Explore some of their recent publications below to get a taster of what you can learn from them in Beijing.
