Guest Editor: Professor Kai Wu College of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering, Peking University, Beijing 100871, China Research Interests: Surface physical chemistry, including molecular adsorption, assembly, reaction, molecular electron spin and ion chemistry at structure-controlled surfaces
Special Issue Information Surface physical chemistry is an essential branch of physical chemistry, primarily dealing with surface chemistry and physics. It involves the exploration of fundamental chemical principles on solid surfaces and registers wide applications in heterogeneous catalysis, electrochemistry, energy chemistry and nanotechnology. As stated by Professor G. Ertl, Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry in 2007, “the whole field of nanotechnology is in fact essentially governed by surface reactions”. With the rapid development of modern surface science techniques and theoretical chemistry, it’s now actually possible for scientists to explore surface physicochemical processes at the atomic and molecular levels.
In this special issue, several domestic scientists working in surface physical chemistry are invited to share their recent research progress with our readers.
Submission Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://www.whxb.pku.edu.cn/journalx_wlhx_en/authorLogOn.action. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles, communications and perspectives are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) for announcement on this website. Manuscripts written in English or Chinese can be accepted. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. We do not charge any fees from authors.
