American Chemical Society
United States
1997-present }} The Journal of Physical Chemistry B is a Peer review peer-reviewed scientific journal that covers research on several fields of material chemistry (macromolecules, soft matter, and surfactant s) as well as statistical mechanics , thermodynamics , and biophysical chemistry . It has been published weekly since 1997 by the American Chemical Society . Due to the growing amount of research in the fields it covers, the journal was split into two at the beginning of 2007, with the Journal of Physical Chemistry C specializing in nanostructure s, the structures and properties of surfaces and interfaces, electronics , and related topics. According to the Journal Citation Reports , the journal s 2010 impact factor is 3.603.

Aluminum complexes identified via vibrational fingerprints

Dissolved aluminum formed during industrial processing has perplexed chemists by occurring in much greater concentrations than predicted. Efforts to explain the phenomenon have been hampered by an inability to accurately ...

A boundary dance of amyloid-β stepping into dementia

Alzheimer's disease is caused by aggregates of amyloid-β (Aβ) peptides. This aggregation is accelerated at the cell membrane surface. Using molecular dynamics simulations and NMR experiments, the research group at ExCELLS ...

Predicting the properties of a new class of glasses

ZIF glasses, a new family of glass, could combine the transparency of silicate glass with the nonbrittle quality of metallic glass, according to researchers at Penn State and Cambridge University in the U.K.

How do cellular machines unfold misfolded proteins?

Protein chains typically fold to function. Folding is a complex process and if done correctly leads to a unique functional fold topology for a given protein chain. Other topologies are also possible but are often non-functional ...

Study of salts in water causing stir

New insight into science that seems, on its surface, exceedingly simple—what happens when you add salt to water—could ultimately lead to a better understanding of biochemical processes in cells and perhaps advance sources ...

The science behind the fizz: How the bubbles make the beverage

From popping a bottle of champagne for a celebration to cracking open a soda while watching the Super Bowl, everyone is familiar with fizz. But little is known about the chemistry behind the bubbles. Now, one group sheds ...
