Aims and Scope

Every aspects of chemistry, including Catalysis, chemical reaction engineering, environmental chemical engineering, green and sustainable science and engineering, and new materials are the areas of applied chemistry that are the emphasis of the applied chemistry today Journal.

As an academic journal, the applied chemistry today Journal welcomes articles of fresh, innovative fundamental research. The journal's objectives are to give original fundamental research and discussions of recent advances in applied chemistry a global platform. The main emphasis is on novel, thorough, and broadly applicable research findings.

The Catalysis section of the applied chemistry today Journal includes experimental research on heterogeneous catalysis, molecular catalysis, and biocatalysis with applications to chemicals, energy, materials, foods, medicine, and environmental protection.

The Environmental Chemical Engineering section features articles on cutting-edge environmental chemical and process engineering topics, such as waste-to-energy, pollution control, advanced oxidation processes, separation processes, adsorption of contaminants, resource recovery, CO2 capture and utilization, and micro (nano) plastic detection and remediation.

The Chemical Reaction Engineering section of the applied chemistry today Journal features articles on a broad range of subjects, such as reaction kinetics, process intensification, unsteady-state reactors, multiphase reactors, simulation and optimization of various reactor types, and basic studies of the heat, mass, and momentum transfer processes that accompany chemical reactions. Novel reactor designs and materials, as well as creative research projects addressing important aspects of reactor engineering and developing reactor technologies such as membrane reactors, chromatographic reactors, unconventional fluidized bed reactors, electrochemical reactors, micro-reactors, photoreactors, fuel cells, enzymatic reactors, etc. are especially encouraged. submissions that are only based on theoretical work, will not be considered.

The Green and Sustainable Science and Engineering section of the applied chemistry today Journal features articles that highlight creative scientific and engineering approaches to a sustainable future for both humans and the environment. This section covers the following subjects, although it is not limited to: New materials and methods for environmentally friendly resource conversion (such as oil, gas, coal, biomass, plastics, and synthesis gas); 2) Green methods and system integration for producing clean and renewable energy (such as biofuels and H2), advanced air, water, and solid waste treatment, resource recovery (such as nutrients, heavy metals, rare earth elements, and energy), the relationship between energy, food, and water; and 3) innovative methods for separating, purifying, and storing greenhouse gases (such as CO2 and CH4), and intermediates/by-products.

Articles detailing the creation of novel functional materials and/or materials processing techniques with substantiated real-world applications are accepted for consideration in the applied chemistry today Journal's Novel Materials for Energy and Advanced Applications section. An experimental component is necessary for all articles under consideration, even though theoretical calculations are welcome. Any paper that can be applied will be taken into consideration, such as:

  • Materials for sensors, such as optical, biomedical, electrochemical, gas, strain, biosensor, and optical sensors, as long as the focus is on the creation of new materials.
  • Biomedical materials, including gene therapy, tissue engineering, photothermal/photodynamic treatment, drug delivery, and nanomedicine.
  • Functional polymer composites (flame-retardant, adhesive, sustainable, thermal-management, electromagnetic-shielding, shape-memory, or self-healing materials with proven applications).
  • Functional surfaces, such as coatings that prevent corrosion, antimicrobial surfaces, anti-icing surfaces, and super hydrophobic/self-cleaning surfaces
  • Resources for producing fuel through photo- or electro-catalysis (water splitting, nitrogen fixation, CO2 reduction).
  • Solar cell materials, such as dye-sensitized, perovskite, and organic solar cells
  • Electrochemical energy storage materials, such as dielectric capacitors, super capacitors, flow batteries, and primary and secondary batteries
  • Materials (phase change materials, energy storage materials, thermoelectric devices) for thermal/thermochemical energy storage and conversion
  • Materials with energy (propellers, explosives)
  • Substances for electro catalytic processes, such as the evolution of hydrogen/oxygen and water splitting.
  • Materials that emit and filter light, such as photodetectors, electrochromic materials, optical thermometry, and LEDs and OLEDs.
