MSE Professor and emc2 faculty member, Richard Robinson, has been selected by the Editorial and International Editorial Advisory Boards of the Journal of Materials Chemistry A as one of the emerging top scientists at the early stages of their careers in Materials Chemistry.  His Highlight paper on Chemical Transformations of Nanomaterials for Energy Application appears in the J. Mater. Chem. A "Emerging Investigators themed issue".

M. Fayette and R.D. Robinson, "Chemical Transformations of Nanomaterials for Energy Applications", Journal of Materials Chemistry A 2, 5965 (2014) http://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/articlelanding/2013/ta/c3ta13982d

Journal of Materials Chemistry A is proud to introduce this themed issue highlighting important work by scientists at the early stages of their careers in materials chemistry. Members of the Editorial Board provided a selection of researchers of merit and potential to be included. This has resulted in an impressive collection of research papers and review-type articles which we hope you enjoy reading.

The inaugural Emerging Investigators issue of Journal of Materials Chemistry A emphasizes the important work being undertaken internationally in the field of materials chemistry. A special profile article profiling each emerging investigator is availabie online (DOI: 10.1039/c4ta90043j). Topics highlighted include lithium-ion batteries, nanomaterials, supercapacitors, energy harvesting materials and photovoltaics.
