This journal presents critical reviews of present and future trends spanning modern chemical research, including intersections with such disciplines as biology, medicine, physics and materials science. The issues are organized as thematic collections which offer the non-specialist reader in academe or industry a comprehensive perspective on emerging research. Each review article is a critical survey of one aspect of the issue’s topic, which places it in the context of the collection. Selected examples illustrate the most significant developments of the last 5 to 10 years. Rather than attempt an exhaustive summary of the field or include large quantities of data, each article concentrates on the methodological thinking. This allows the non-specialist reader to fully grasp the information, and conveys the prospects of potential developments to come.

  • Presents comprehensive reviews of established and emerging topics in modern chemical research
  • Supervised by Editors and an Editorial Board of world-leading chemists
  • Organized into topical collections edited by experts in the field
  • Topical collections viewable online as they develop
  • Once completed, topical collections will become available in hardcover print format
  • Contributing authors will benefit from MyPublication services such as article tracking
  • Final bibliographic data for each article immediately upon online publication

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
