Gregory Hartland, Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry, has been named Deputy Editor for the Journal of Physical Chemistry C of the American Chemical Society. The journal focuses on experimental and computational physical chemistry research in energy conversion and storage, heterogeneous catalysis, and the spectroscopy and physical properties of solid-state and nanomaterials.
Hartland’s expertise aligns directly with the journal, as his research group uses optics to characterize the properties of nanomaterials and how these materials interact with their environments. A major focus of this research is developing new techniques for time-resolved and steady-state spectroscopic studies on single particles.
Professor Hartland is a Fellow of the American Chemical Society, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and he was the 2018 Priestley Lecturer at Pennsylvania State University.
