About this book series

Springer Briefs in Molecular Science: History of Chemistry presents concise summaries of historical topics covering all aspects of chemistry, alchemy, and chemical technology. The aim of the series is to provide volumes that are of broad interest to the chemical community, while still retaining a high level of historical scholarship such that they are of interest to both chemists and science historians.

Featuring compact volumes of 50 to 125 pages, the series acts as a venue between articles published in the historical journals and full historical monographs or books.

Typical topics might include:

  • An overview or review of an important historical topic of broad interest
  • Biographies of prominent scientists, alchemists, or chemical practitioners
  • New historical research of interest to the chemical community

Briefs allow authors to present their ideas and readers to absorb them with minimal time investment. Briefs are published as part of Springer’s eBook collection, with millions of users worldwide. In addition, Briefs are available for individual print and electronic purchase. Briefs are characterized by fast, global electronic dissemination, standard publishing contracts, easy-to-use manuscript preparation and formatting guidelines, and expedited production schedules. Both solicited and unsolicited manuscripts are considered for publication in this series.
