The main aim of Chirality (ISI Impact Factor 2011: 2.350) is to publish scientific work on the role of molecular asymmetry in both biologically active and non-biologically active molecules in respect to their pharmacological, biological, and chemical properties. Drugs, pesticides, and other xenobiotics will be a major interest.

Papers on the chemistry (physiochemical, preparative synthetic, and analytical), pharmacology, clinical pharmacology, toxicology, and other biological aspects of chiral molecules will be published.

Among the topics to be covered are stereospecific synthesis, stereoselective analysis, preparative separation of chiral molecules, the influence of chirality on pharmacokinetics (absorption, distribution, protein binding, biotransformation, etc.), the influence of chirality on pharmacodynamics (drug-receptor interactions, pharmacological and toxicological activity), and the influence of chirality on clinical pharmacology (therapeutic index and response, bioavailability, adverse drug reactions, drug-drug interactions). Papers will also be published on regulatory and legal aspects in the development, testing, and marketing of chiral compounds.

In addition to original research papers, the journal will publish brief reviews, short communications, and conference reports. Book reviews will also appear.
