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 first recorded scientific observation of an inorganic coordination compound (complex ion [Cu(NH3]4]2+) was made by Andreas Libavius in 1597. However, modern coordination chemistry starts its history from the seminal works of Alfred Werner who formulated theory of coordination compounds used in our days. Since that time, coordination chemistry has transformed into one of the most fundamental fields among the chemical sciences. Metal complexes – the primary subjects of coordination chemistry – represent a vast group of chemical species with extremely broad application in all fields of chemistry and chemical industry including but not limiting by pharmacology, catalysis, and new materials with valuable properties.

The Special Issue “Coordination Chemistry and Metal Complexes” will cover all aspects related to these research field and type of compounds. The previously unpublished manuscripts reporting experimental and/or theoretical studies on the synthesis, characterization, application of coordination compounds, reaction mechanisms, and the development of new synthetic methods and strategies involving or leading to metal complexes are welcome.

In addition, papers in our special issue allow open access, retained copyright, through rigorous peer-review, free of charge and fast publication if it is officially accepted.
