special issues

[author checklist]

Acta Crystallographica Section C publishes focused special sections and issues devoted to all areas of structural chemistry.

The journal has recently published four exciting special issues on topics as diverse as Scorpionates, Pharmaceuticals, drug discovery and natural products, Interplay of crystallography, spectroscopy and theoretical methods for solving chemical problems and Computational materials discovery. Full details are available below.

The third virtual issue will be published in early 2014 and will feature metal-organic frameworks.

If you would like to see a special issue on a particular topic enabled by the determination, calculation or analysis of small-molecule crystal and molecular structures in the chemical sciences, please send your suggestion to the Managing Editor (Sean Conway; sc@iucr.org). For more information on special issues, contact the Section Editor (Anthony Linden; anthony.linden@chem.uzh.ch).

recently published special issues

Acta Crystallographica Section C has recently published four special issues on the topics listed below with the aim of expanding the scope and authorship of the journal. It is hoped that the special issues will demonstrate to the scientific community the style of papers that the journal is now inviting. Acta Crystallographica Section C: Structural Chemistry is the journal of choice for publishing any interesting research enabled by the determination, calculation or analysis of small-molecule crystal and molecular structures in the chemical sciences.

Scorpionates

Guest editor: Glenn Yap (University of Delaware, USA; e-mail: gpyap@udel.edu)

This issue includes contributions from some of the best authors in the field of this chemically important family of prolific and work-horse ligands wherein the structure has a palpable effect on reactivity.

Pharmaceuticals, drug discovery and natural products

Guest editor: Chris Frampton (Pharmorphix Solid State Services, Cambridge, UK; e-mail: chris.frampton@sialcom)

This issue addresses and discusses the timeless questions of polymorphism, stereochemistry and H-atom position, and the structural data presented originates not just from X-ray analyses, but also from NMR and computational studies, thus demonstrating the widened scope of the journal.

Interplay of crystallography, spectroscopy and theoretical methods for solving chemical problems

Guest editors: Larry Falvello (Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain; e-mail: falvello@unizar.es) and Alberto Albinati (Universita degli Studi di Milano, Italy; e-mail: alberto.albinati@unimi.it)

This issue presents research articles and scientific comments demonstrating that the vast utility of structure determination is manifest in other techniques in addition to single-crystal diffraction analysis, and that a description of structure can derive immense leverage from physical measurements and computational modelling.

Computational materials discovery

Guest editor: Artem Oganov (State University of New York at Stony Brook, USA; e-mail: artem.oganov@sunysb.edu)

This issue highlights the two most important breakthroughs of this field, i.e. crystal structure prediction and electronic structure calculations, and their applications to specific problems of materials science.
