This issue is dedicated to the Symposium “Photoinduced Proton Transfer in Chemistry and Biology” organized by the Division of Physical Chemistry at the 248th American Chemical Society National Meeting in San Francisco, Aug 10–14, 2014. The cover designed by Russian artist Andrei Kouznetsov illustrates the exciting international nature of the photoinduced proton transfer (PPT) studies. The proton is being transferred from one Symposium organizer, and this issue's Guest Editor (Pi-Tai Chou, National Taiwan University), to another (Kyril Solntsev, Georgia Tech). The readers will find an amazing comprehensive collection of the PPT-related papers covering the broad range of theory, chemical kinetics, photochemistry, biochemistry, spectroscopy, and material science.
