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

Biogeochemistry of trace elements in aquatic ecosystems

This issue will focus on studies that have investigated analytical methods and approaches  for measuring the biogeochemical cycling of trace elements in aquatic ecosystems.

This includes studies that have investigated:

  • The partitioning and movement of elements in ecosystems between air, water, sediments and biota
  • The changes in chemical forms of elements (speciation) as cycling occurs in ecosystems
  • The relationships of exposure-dose-response (s) in the uptake and cycling of elements by biota
  • Quality control and assurance issues in biogeochemical measurements

The significance of these studies, is that without appropriate methods fundamental questions on biogeochemical cycling cannot be addressed.
