Series of editorials on the most highly cited publications in the history (1000 issues) of this major journal in materials science. Article by D.A.H. Hanaor and C.C. Sorrell “Review of the anatase to rutile phase transformation” (2011) which focussed on the effect of addition of different dopant elements on enhancing the transformation of titania (TiO2) from its anatase polymorph to the more commonly-seen stable polymorph of rutile.
This article is important since it explains the effects of different doping elements on the transformation from available literature (up to 2011) and makes predictions on the effects of dopants that were not tested. Editorial was conducted by Prof. Christopher F. Blanford from the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester.
The main points of the editorial are :
Professor Chris (Charles) Sorrell is one of our senior academic who has joined the School of Materials Science and Engineering, UNSW since 1987 and Dr. Hanaor is a former undergraduate and Ph.D. student from the School of Materials Science and Engineering, UNSW and is currently working and researching at TU Berlin.
