Providing a glimpse into the future, the young scientists contributing here were considered to be the most important for tomorrow′s chemistry and materials science. They present the state of the art and the perspectives in their particular fields of research, with topics ranging from new synthetic pathways and nanotechnology to green chemistry.

Clearly divided into three main areas of discussion, the first part deals with self–organization, nanoscience and nanotechnology, culminating in new approaches of the study of soft matter 3D organization. Part Two looks at organic synthesis, catalysis and materials, while the final part covers health, food, and the environment, including future perspectives for medical chemistry and photochemical transformation processes of environmental significance.

Of major interest to physical– and organic chemists, materials scientists and biochemists.

Bruno Pignataro, born in Bologna in 1972, is Professor of Physical Chemistry at the University of Palermo. He received his degree in chemistry in 1995 from the University of Catania and his PhD in materials science five years later. He has helped establish a wide network of international collaborations and organized more than 10 meetings at national and international level, including coordinating the Young Chemists Group of the Italian Chemical Society and chairing the first editions of the European Young Chemist Award. He is a referee for several leading chemistry and materials journals, has more than 70 scientific publications and some 90 conference communications to his name, along with several invited lectures. Professor Pignataro′s research interests focus on the related fields of the physical chemistry of molecular surfaces and soft nanotechnologies.
