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. Coverage includes fundamental studies on, practical applications of, and new approaches towards micro-/nanomaterials such as micro- and nano-shaped particles, upconversion particles, quantum dots, micro/nano-wires, molecular frameworks, meso- and nanoporous materials, nano-sized/structured imprints, thin films, hybrid materials, and related nanosized matter. Invited reviews provide a critical assessment of research progress in these fields.

  • 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
