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

  • 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.
