Advances in Chemical Research (ACR) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of chemistry. 

As well as reflecting the traditional core subjects of analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, the journal also features a broad range of chemical research in areas including, but not limited to, catalysis, computational and theoretical, environmental, green , medicinal, nuclear, polymer, supramolecular and surface chemistry. Other cross-disciplinary topics, such as bioinorganic, bio-organic, organometallic and physical–organic chemistry, will also be featured. 

Main research areas include (but are not limited to):
Organic chemistry
Inorganic chemistry
Physical chemistry
Chemical biology
Analytical chemistry
Supramolecular chemistry
Theoretical chemistry
Computational chemistry
Green chemistry
Structural chemistry
Energy and environmental chemistry

About This Topic

The rapid development of computational power and methodologies enables computational materials chemistry to become an essential tool to help chemists understand the reaction mechanisms and guide the experimental design. It also plays the key role to reveal the physicochemical properties of emerging materials, such as low-dimensional materials, heterostructures and organic/inorganic hybrids. The interests and efforts of scientists active in this hot topic motivate the publication of this special issue ‘Computational Materials Chemistry’. The scope of this special issue includes:

1) development of multiscale computation materials chemistry tools,

2) structure-property-performance relationships of materials,

3) materials design.
