Materials Today Chemistry is a multi-disciplinary journal focused on all aspects of materials chemistry.

Materials chemistry is one of the fastest developing areas of science, covering the application of chemistry-based techniques to the study of materials; including materials synthesis and behavior, and the relationships between material structure and properties at the atomic and molecular scale. Materials Today Chemistry provides a forum for the discussion of research that is helping advance the field through new discoveries and new techniques.

Part of the Materials Today family, Materials Today Chemistry offers authors rigorous peer review, rapid decisions, and high visibility.
The editors welcome comprehensive articles, short communications and reviews on topics including but not limited to:

  • Synthesis
  • Nanomaterials
  • Hybrid materials
  • Polymers
