The first issue of Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry, formed from the merger and strategic development of Perkin Transactions 1 & 2, will be published on 10 January 2003. The electronic version will go up on 23 December 2002.
Barbara Imperiali, Francois Diederich, Ben Feringa and Chi-Huey Wong are amongst the first eminent scientists to publish Advance Articles in the journal. Further details are given below. The first issue will also feature contributions from Steve Ley, Jay Siegel and
Michael Burkart, these will be available online soon.
