The journal Molecules has asked me to be guest editor on a Special Issue: “Isotope effects”. I have accepted as I find this a good opportunity to follow up on recent excellent books on the subject. It is important to keep the fire burning. No need to tell you how important isotope effects are but it is important to make the subject very visible. Hence this issue.
The volume will have some twenty contributions. The contributions can be either review papers or cover new research. Subjects can typically be kinetic isotope effects, reaction mechanisms, isotope effects in H-bond research, isotope effects as tool in structural studies, use of isotope effects in food research, theoretical calculations of isotope effects, use of isotope effects in environmental studies to mention some areas but papers dealing with all types of isotope effects in chemistry are invited.
