Supervisory authorities


Congratulations to Guglielmo on receiving the Gaston Berthier award !

The Gaston Berthier price rewards the contribution of a remarkable PhD work in the field of theoretical chemistry.

Chem2 is accepting submissions

The benefits of this open-access journal will be dedicated to the training of young scientists.

Feature article in Nature Materials on perovskites

Claudine and her coworkers discuss the possible impact of various entropy contributions (stochastic structural fluctuations, anharmonicity and lattice softness) on the optoelectronic properties of halide perovskite materials and devices.

Boris guest editor in EurJIC

This cluster issue on molecular magnetism is dedicated to the legacy of O. Kahn.

CTI takes over J. Phys. Chem. Lett.!

In issue 14 (July 20) of J. Phys. Chem. Lett. you will find not one but two contributions from the team, including on the cover!
