Chemical Science is a peer-reviewed scientific journal covering the chemical sciences. It was established in July 2010 and is published monthly by the Royal Society of Chemistry. Its first impact factor will be released in 2012. The PDF files of the 2010 and 2011 content are free to access until the end of 2011. Authors can elect to have accepted articles published as open access. Chemical Science won the Best New Journal 2011 award from the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers. The editor-in-chief is David MacMillan (Princeton University). Chemical Science publishes original research articles across the chemical sciences, including organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, environmental chemistry, green chemistry, theoretical chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, analytical chemistry, materials science, nanoscience, and chemical biology. Chemical Science publishes all original (primary) research in one format called "Edge Articles", which have no page limits and should be written in a succinct way. Authors can make use of electronic supplementary information to store bulky experimental details and data. The journal also publishes mini-reviews

Osmium activation in cancer cells

Cancer is a complex disease, and as such, there is no single way to tackle it. While cancer treatments are evolving toward personalized procedures, in most cases, standard chemotherapy treatments are still required. In chemotherapy, ...

Super-selective catalysts key to carbon conversion

Catalysts could prove to be the key to converting carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide into value-added products but their effectiveness depends on them being selective in how they work.

Researchers make new charge storage mechanism discovery

Research between the University of Liverpool, UK and National Tsing Hua University (NTHU), Taiwan has revealed a new charge storage mechanism that has the potential to allow rechargeability within calcium-air batteries.

Cancer-promoting Ras protein exists in a pair within cells

Researchers from Bochum and Osnabrück have gained new insights into the structure of the Ras protein, which acts as a molecular switch for cell growth and is involved in the development of cancer. With the help of fluorescence ...

New biological and safer soaps

An international research team led by Professor Charles Gauthier from the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) has discovered a new molecule with potential to revolutionize the biosurfactant market. The team's ...

Simple entropies for complicated molecules

Chemists of the University of Bonn developed a computational tool for the analysis of conformational entropies of flexible molecules. Their method enables the thermodynamic investigation of complicated chemical systems by ...
