(This article belongs to the Special Issue A Special Issue in Honor of Professor Josef Michl)
This Special Issue of Chemistry is dedicated to Professor Josef Michl [1], a pioneer in several theoretical and experimental fields of chemistry. After obtaining a Ph.D. degree at Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czechoslovakia, in 1965, and working as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Houston and the University of Texas at Austin, he was associated with several institutions, including the Aarhus University, the University of Utah, and the University of Texas at Austin. Currently, he works at the University of Colorado Boulder, USA, and the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry at the Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czech Republic. He has made significant contributions to many fields of theoretical and experimental organic chemistry, such as organic photochemistry, chemistry of biradicals and biradicaloids, electronic and vibrational spectroscopy, silicon and boron chemistry, reactive intermediates, and magnetic circular dichroism.
The contributions in this Special Issue cover diverse fields of science, including molecular motors [2] and nanorotors [3], singlet fission [4], aromaticity [5], photochemistry [6,7,8], boron chemistry [9], and DFT calculations [10,11,12].
