Happy 100th Anniversary

In 2009 the Italian Chemistry Society (Società Chimica Italiana, SCI) is celebrating its 100th anniversary. To mark this important occasion, Chemistry—A European Journal will publish a special issue of the journal. In addition to a series of Communications and Full Papers from top Italian authors, this issue will feature a number of historical articles on the role of Italian chemists and chemistry in the worldwide development of the subject, as well as a Guest Editorial from the current President of the Italian Chemistry Society, Professor Luigi Campanella.

A selection of the papers that will appear in this special issue (issue 32) is given below.
