The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) has named Dr. Gilbert Walker of the University of Toronto as editor-in-chief of Langmuir. Walker’s term will begin in January 2020 and will follow the retirement of Dr. Françoise Winnik of the University of Helsinki.
Walker is a distinguished professor at the University of Toronto’s department of chemistry, where he leads the Laboratory for Advanced Nanoscience at Surfaces. This laboratory uses chemistry, optics and mechanics to investigate fundamental nanoscale phenomena at surfaces. The findings are used to develop applications, such as marine antifouling coatings for the aquaculture industry and surface-enhanced Raman scattering nanoparticles for the detection of leukemia and lymphoma cells.
As the premier journal focusing on the science of systems and materials in which the interface dominates structure and function, Langmuir focuses on advances in the understanding of interfaces, including novel concepts and emerging areas.
