Giant is an interdisciplinary title focusing on fundamental and applied macromolecular science spanning all chemistry, physics, biology, and materials aspects of the field in the broadest sense. Key areas covered include macromolecular chemistry, supramolecular assembly, multiscale and multifunctional materials, organic-inorganic hybrid materials, biophysics, biomimetics and surface science. Core topics range from developments in synthesis, characterisation and assembly towards creating uniformly sized precision macromolecules with tailored properties, to the design and assembly of nanostructured materials in multiple dimensions, and further to the study of smart or living designer materials with tuneable multiscale properties. The journal seeks to bring an alternative, inclusive perspective on macromolecules and serves as a platform for discussions around emerging concepts in macromolecular science, with emphasis on the ever-expanding scope of new macromolecular architectures and the new understanding of the underlying common features of macromolecular systems.

Core topics include but are not limited to:
  • Macromolecules, biomacromolecules, and molecular clusters
  • Nanomaterials and hybrid materials
  • Supramolecular chemistry and hierarchical assembly
  • Theory, modelling, and simulation in multiple scales
  • Artificial/bio-inspired intelligent surface, interface and materials
  • Soft-matter materials for health, energy and other related applications

The editors welcome comprehensive articles, short communications and reviews and invited news and views articles.
