Chemistry Europe announced its newest group of Fellows. The Fellows were selected for their significant contributions to Chemistry Europe and excellence in research, creativity and innovation.

One of the new Fellows is Ghent University professor Kristof Van Hecke. He specializes in crystallization and structural analysis by X-ray diffraction. Among other things, he uses these techniques in his research on the structure of new hybrid (nano)materials and flexible and photodynamic crystals as luminescent systems for optoelectronics and the conversion of light energy into mechanical motion. The applications of his research are endless, ranging from drug delivery to solar cells.
