Special issue of PCCP on ultrafast chemical dynamics

Issued: Wed, 18 Apr 2012 15:17:00 BST

Chemical reactions may take hours or days to complete but the underlying molecular motions take place on a femtosecond (1/1,000,000,000,000,000 second) timescale. The latest issue of PCCP (Physical Chemistry and Chemical Physics), the top physical chemistry journal of the Royal Society of Chemistry, is dedicated to such ultrafast chemical dynamics. The special issue was guest edited by Prof Klaas Wynne in the School of Chemistry at Glasgow University and his colleague Dr Neil Hunt at the University of Strathclyde. It is very loosely based on the Ultrafast Chemical Physics conference held in December 2011 and contains articles on topics as diverse as the use of femtosecond x-ray pulses for structure determination, gas phase reaction dynamics, structure in the liquid phase, proteins, etc.
