The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) has named Dr. J. Ilja Siepmann of the University of Minnesota as editor-in-chief of the Journal of Chemical & Engineering Data.
Siepmann has been on the faculty at the University of Minnesota since 1994, where he is a professor in the department of chemistry and a member of the graduate faculties in chemical physics, chemical engineering and materials science. There, his research group focuses on particle-based computer simulations to understand how molecular architecture and composition influence structure, phase behaviour and function of the chemical systems of interest. He has been an associate editor of the Journal of Chemical & Engineering Data since 2015 and also serves as director of the Nanoporous Materials Genome Center funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. As editor-in-chief, Siepmann will succeed Dr. Joan F. Brennecke, who has served in this position since 2010.
First introduced in 1959, the Journal of Chemical & Engineering Data is the only ACS title that focuses on data on the phase behaviour and the physical, thermodynamic and transport properties of well-defined materials, including complex mixtures of known compositions. The journal’s scope further includes thermophysical properties acquired through computational quantum chemistry, molecular simulations and molecular mechanics calculations. With over 23,000 citations and 600 publications in 2019, the Journal of Chemical & Engineering Data ranks at the top of its field.
