Professor Siepmann Named Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Chemical & Engineering Data

September 15, 2020 -- The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) has named Ilja Siepmann editor-in-chief of the Journal of Chemical & Engineering Data.

“My vision for the Journal of Chemical & Engineering Data is to make it the preeminent journal in the thermophysical data field,” says Siepmann. “The journal will stand out as the most trusted source for accurate, precise, and reproducible thermophysical data, enhancing standards of research and shaping the future directions of the thermophysical data field while advancing the chemical sciences and their technological chemical processes.”

The Journal of Chemical & Engineering Data is the only ACS title that focuses on data on the phase behavior 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.
