Aims and Scope

Catalyst science plays a central role in making chemical processes more efficient and sustainable. ChemCatChem publishes cutting-edge catalysis research. From organic synthesis to energy and environmental applications, ChemCatChem covers the whole spectrum of catalysis science, including both chemo- and biocatalysis. We are committed to collaborating with the global catalysis community, supporting scientists at every stage of their careers.

We understand the huge pressures the scientific community is facing every day and we want to support you. Chemistry Europe is an association of 16 chemical societies from 15 European countries. Run by chemists, for chemists—we evaluate, publish, disseminate, and amplify the scientific excellence of chemistry researchers from around the globe.
