Chemists frequently collaborate with other scientists and approach research topics with the tools and insights from multiple scientific disciplines. ChemPlusChem provides a high-quality forum for papers arising from these scientific partnerships.

ChemPlusChem is a peer-reviewed journal tailored to multidisciplinary chemistry and materials research from around the world. Fully comprehensive in its scope, ChemPlusChem publishes original papers covering at least two different aspects (subfields) of chemistry or one of chemistry and one of another scientific discipline (one chemistry topic plus another one, hence the title ChemPlusChem). The readership of this journal includes chemists of all disciplines and materials scientists.

ChemPlusChem is published on behalf of Chemistry Europe – a unique organization of 16 European chemical societies serving 75,000 members.

ChemPlusChem is a sister journal of Chemistry—A European Journal, European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, European Journal of Organic Chemistry, ChemBioChem, ChemCatChem, ChemElectroChem, ChemMedChem, ChemPhotoChem, ChemPhysChem, ChemSusChem and ChemistryOpen.

As a Chemistry Europe journal, ChemPlusChem shares the commitment to scientific excellence, to publishing ethics, and to the highest standards in publication.

"It is very satisfying to see how the journal has developed over the last few years and has become established in the community working in cross-disciplinary research in a broad range of the chemical sciences,"
said Professor Matthias Driess from the Berlin Institute of Technology and Co-chair of ChemPlusChem. "The solutions provided by interdisciplinary research rely on deeper understanding of fundamental aspects, which need to be communicated appropriately. The journal is a visible part of the family of journals which provide an ideal forum for publishing fundamental findings and their functional implications."

"Current research in the chemical sciences focuses on increasingly complex and multidisciplinary projects. The success of ChemPlusChem these past five years clearly indicates the strong resonance of this general multidisciplinary journal for the publication of such complex studies," says Professor Michal Hocek from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry, Czech Republic, and Co-chair of ChemPlusChem.

Articles in ChemPlusChem cover any combination of, but are not limited to, these subfields of chemistry:

  • general chemistry
  • biotechnology
  • organic chemistry
  • inorganic chemistry
  • physical chemistry
  • macromolecular chemistry
  • analytical chemistry
  • biological chemistry
  • organometallic chemistry
  • polymer chemistry
  • computational chemistry
  • sustainable chemistry
  • supramolecular chemistry
  • materials science
  • nanochemistry
  • medicinal chemistry
  • electrochemistry
  • catalysis
  • photochemistry
  • surface chemistry

Co-Chairs of the Editorial Board

Matthais DriessMatthias Driess is professor of chemistry at the Berlin Institute of Technology, Germany. His research is focused on the design of organometallic compounds that act as molecular building blocks for functional materials, including systems applied in homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis.

Michal HocekMichal Hocek is professor at the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry in Prague, Czech Republic. His research involves DNA chemistry, transition metal catalysis, and medicinal chemistry.

Tetsuro Majima is professor at Osaka University, Japan. His research interests center on laser photochemistry and radiation chemistry, energy transfer and electron transfer, DNA and protein chemistry, and imaging.
