Roberto Gil Named Features Editor of the Journal Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry

By Amy Pavlak

Roberto Gil, research professor of chemistry and director of the Department of Chemistry’s NMR Facility, has been appointed the features editor of the journal Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry.

“We are delighted to have Roberto on board in the newly appointed role of Features Editor,” wrote the journal’s editors in the January-February 2014 issue. “Features are to become one of the unique centre-points of the journal, offering our readers a range of exciting and accessible article types.”

Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry, which publishes papers on the development and application of magnetic resonance techniques, recently underwent an overhaul to reveal an updated design and a new approach to content and editorial structure.

“This is an exciting opportunity to be involved in increasing the visibility and broadening the audience of the journal,” Gil said.

Gil’s research interests focus on developing new NMR methodologies for analyzing the structure of small organic molecules oriented in weak alignment media. He also carries out structural analyses of complex natural and synthetic small organic molecules, including synthetic polymers, natural products from plants, and small fragments of peptide nucleic acids (PNA) and DNA duplexes.
