ACS launches two new journals in nanotechnology and crystallography

November 27, 2000

Experts in the areas of nanoscience and technology and crystallography, A. Paul Alivisatos, Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley, editor-in-chief of Nano Letters and Robin Rodgers, Ph.D., University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, and editor-in-chief of Crystal Growth & Design, discuss their publications and the state of science and technology within their respective fields.

Crystal Growth & Design integrates the fields of crystal engineering and crystal growth for the synthesis and applications of new materials. It is the second journal published by the ACS in collaboration with the Association of Research Libraries' Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition, a group fostering competition in the scientific publishing marketplace.

Nano Letters provides rapid disclosure of studies, publishing preliminary, experimental and theoretical results on the physical, chemical and biological phenomena, processes and applications of structures within the nanoscale range.

WHAT: Robert D. Bovenschulte, publications director, American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society, announces the launch of two new scholarly publications.

WHO: A. Paul Alivisatos, Ph.D.,editor-in-chief, Nano Letter and Robin Rodgers, Ph.D., editor-in-chief, Crystal Growth & Design

WHEN: Tuesday, November 28, 2000, 8:00-10:00 p.m., ACS Publications Reception

WHERE: Materials Research Society Fall Meeting Sheraton Boston Hotel, 39 Dalton Street, Constitution A

American Chemical Society
