Challenges and Perspectives in Materials Chemistry—A Celebration of Prof. Sir Anthony K. Cheetham's 75th Birthday
Advanced materials are critical for developing cleaner energy, smart electronic gadgets, and healthcare tools. Materials chemistry is the gateway for understanding how advanced materials develop and function, including their syntheses, structures, and physical properties. Prof. Sir Anthony K. Cheetham has made enormous contributions to materials chemistry, ranging from the discovery of novel materials, the investigation of their mechanical, electronic and magnetic properties, to pioneering a rich set of structural characterization methods. We organize this Special Issue to discuss recent advances, current challenges and future perspectives in materials chemistry, and to celebrate Prof. Sir Cheetham's many and groundbreaking contributions to the field.
