This themed issue focusses on the field of main group chemistry, covering a diverse array of developments and potential applications in fields ranging from catalysis to molecular electronics. These have often evolved from studies in fundamental chemistry such as studies of the chemistry of low oxidation state and/or low coordination number compounds of the main group elements, fundamental studies in Lewis-acid/Lewis-base reactivity, main group heterocycles, free radicals and studies of the bonding in main group compounds.
