EML paper highlighted as Top Research of 2016 in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering

A recent paper published in Extreme Mechanics Letters (EML) has been chosen to be one of the notable advances in chemistry research in 2016 by Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), the largest professional society magazine in chemistry and chemical engineering.

The highlighted EML paper Drawing liquid metal wires at room temperature by Yiliang Lin et al. describes a process in which wires are formed by stretching viscoelastic polymer substrates supporting a drop of gallium-based liquid metal.

C&EN describes how the team, led by Michael D. Dickey of North Carolina State University, made "10-μm-wide polymer-encased wires of eGaIn, a eutectic mixture of gallium and indium that’s a liquid at room temperature. Unlike ordinary wires, the ones made with eGaIn can easily be stretched, bent, and shaped while maintaining electrical conductivity.” 

This EML paper is among a highly selective list of papers (published in Science, Nature, Nature Chemistry, Nature Nanotechnology, Advanced Materials, etc.) as C&EN Top Research in 2016 in chemistry research. 

The Editors and publisher of EML would like to congratulate the authors on this distinguished recognition, which clearly epitomizes EML's mission to attract top-notch interdisciplinary research.



Extreme Mechanics Letters (EML) enables rapid communication of research that highlights the role of mechanics in multi-disciplinary areas across materials science, physics, chemistry, biology, medicine and engineering. Emphasis is on the impact, depth and originality of new concepts, methods and observations at the forefront of applied sciences. 

EML publishes letter-sized articles, as well as invited reviews and articles on topics of special interest. The goal is to have the papers published online within 6-8 weeks upon submission. 

EML covers experimental, theoretical, and computational mechanics of processes at all size and time scales. Of particular interest is the progress in mechanics that advances the fields of vital importance to the society, including, but not limited to, health science, energy systems, the environment, food and water, climate, and security.

It is the paper that makes the journal not the journal that makes the paper.
