Research Categories


Our aim is to provide rigorous peer review and enable rapid publication of cutting-edge research to educate and inspire the scientific community worldwide. Scientists are encouraged to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. Full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. In addition, the availability of compound samples is published and considered important information, and authors are encouraged to register or deposit their chemical samples through the international non-profit organization Molecular Diversity Preservation International (MDPI). Main research areas include (but are not limited to): -Organic chemistry -Medicinal chemistry -Natural products -Inorganic chemistry -Physical chemistry -Materials science -Nanoscience -Catalysis -Chemical biology -Analytical chemistry -Supramolecular chemistry -Theoretical chemistry -Green chemistry -Photochemistry

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
