Professor of Chemistry, Andrew Cooper, has been named as the new Editor-in-Chief of Chemical Science, the Royal Society of Chemistry’s flagship journal.

Chemical Science is a monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal covering all aspects of chemistry. It publishes findings of exceptional significance from across the chemical sciences.

A Fellow of the Royal Society, Professor Cooper is Academic Director of the University’s Materials Innovation Factory, an £81 million project dedicated to the research and development of advanced materials. He is also Director of the Leverhulme Centre for Functional Material Design, a blue skies research centre that is developing a new approach to the design of functional materials at the atomic scale.

His research interests lie in energy, crystal engineering, microporous materials, solar fuels, and autonomous materials discovery using robotics.

Professor Cooper said: “I’m excited to take on this new role in 2019 and I look forward to working  with a great Editorial Board. The Royal Society of Chemistry does an important job and I’d encourage colleagues to submit their best work to Chemical Science.”

He is also a co-inventor of new class of material known as porous liquids which is being developed for a broad range of technological applications through the spin out company Porous Liquid Technologies’.

Chemical Science is free to read, and free to publish in.
