This month’s cover of Chemical Communications by Patton’d Studios, communicates the great research of A/Prof. Jenny Pringle from Deakin University: “A novel class of gas separation membrane based on organic ionic plastic.”
The photograph depicts the same organic ionic plastic crystals used in the research paper. Creative Director Molly commented, “I particularly love this cover. Emphasising the science as the star of the work really reflects what we are about here. Of course, it’s not always possible, but where it is, using aspects of the science in our cover art yields a more rewarding result.”
