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.

Weird world of water gets a little weirder with a new anomaly

Strange, stranger, strangest! To the weird nature of one of the simplest chemical compounds -- the stuff so familiar that even non-scientists know its chemical formula -- add another odd twist. Scientists are reporting that ...

Gummy bears under antiparticle fire

Gelatin is used in the pharmaceutical industry to encapsulate active agents. It protects against oxidation and overly quick release. Tiny pores in the material have a significant influence on this, yet they are difficult ...

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 ...

How DNA repair helps prevent cancer

The biological information that makes us unique is encoded in our DNA. DNA damage is a natural biological occurrence that happens every time cells divide and multiply. External factors such as overexposure to sunlight can ...

Strong forces at work in simple table salt

( —Inside the chemical processes to synthesize simple table salt crystals, or NaCl, intense electric fields, typically associated with particle accelerators, occur, according to Pacific Northwest National Laboratory ...
