Microchimica Acta (MCA) has established itself as a premier forum for truly novel research results in chemical and biochemical analytical sciences based on the use of micro/nano-structured materials. Beyond such advanced analytical approaches, coverage is extended to methods and devices that provide expedient solutions to the most contemporary demands in (bio)chemical sciences. This includes for example point-of-care technologies, wearable (bio)sensors, in-vivo-monitoring, micro/nanomotors and materials based on synthetic biology as well as biomedical imaging and targeting.
Invited Review Articles provide a critical assessment of research progress in the scientific fields covered by the journal. Topical Collections present emerging topics of paramount interest in the field of analytical sciences based on micro and nanomaterials.
To ensure a high quality of the published articles, the editorial team of Microchimica Acta consists of a unique group of Senior Associate Editors and Associate Editors with expertise in the relevant areas of analytical sciences. Microchimica Acta has established a comprehensive internal reviewing system that aims to warrant the scientific and formal quality of the published manuscripts. Manuscripts are further evaluated by at least two expert reviewers prior to acceptance.
  • Focus: truly novel aspects of chemical and biochemical analytical methods based on the use of (new) micro/nano-materials
  • Microchimica Acta covers fundamentals, practical applications to real-world challenges, and new methodological approaches, if based on micro- or nanomaterials
  • 96% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again
