Chemical Synthesis is an international peer-reviewed, open access, online journal.

Aims and Scope

Chemical Synthesis is an open access peer-reviewed journal publishing original research involving all areas of the chemical sciences. The journal aims to be the premier resource of seminal and insightful research and showcases for researchers in both academia and industry, providing a platform of inspiration for the future of chemistry. Chemical Synthesis intends to serve as the preeminent international chemistry journal and has the ambition to be among the first choices of chemists for publication of their discoveries.

The scope of the journal focuses on the breadth of the chemical synthetic sciences, covering fields from synthetic methodologies, property studies by theoretical calculations or instrumental approaches at molecular and/or nano levels of the obtained products (materials) to the applications in catalysis, energy conversion and storage, biomedicals, pharmaceuticals, environment protection and remediation, etc.

Research works suitable for publication in Chemical Synthesis include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Inorganic synthetic chemistry
  • Organic synthetic chemistry
  • Polymers synthetic chemistry 
  • Synthetic biochemistry
  • Synthetic methodology
  • Bioorganic/medicinal chemistry
