Scope 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

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
