About this collection
In 2012, Chemical Science welcomed Professor Jihong Yu to the journal as an Associate Editor, handling papers in the area of inorganic materials chemistry, with a particular focus on the synthesis and application of nanoporous materials.
Jihong has looked back over Chemical Science papers published recently and has selected some outstanding articles on the theme of inorganic materials. We hope you find them of interest too!
