Prashant Kamat, the Rev. John A. Zahm Professor of Science in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Radiation Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame, will serve as the inaugural editor-in-chief of ACS Energy Letters, a new peer-reviewed journal from the American Chemical Society (ACS). ACS Letters will enable the rapid publication of advances in energy research.
According to the American Chemical Society, ACS Energy Letters will be “the professional society’s first journal to publish research letters focused on all aspects of energy, including capture, conversion and storage. Global solar and wind energy installations are growing by more than 10 percent per year, and renewable energy conversion systems need storage devices to support this growth. With atmospheric carbon dioxide levels continuing to rise, scientists working on these and other challenges now have an outlet to rapidly publish new advances in the field.”
