About the Journal

Australian Journal of Chemistry - an International Journal for Chemical Science publishes research papers from all fields of chemical science. Papers that are multidisciplinary or address new or emerging areas of chemistry are particularly encouraged. Thus, the scope is dynamic. It includes (but is not limited to) synthesis, structure, new materials, macromolecules and polymers, supramolecular chemistry, analytical and environmental chemistry, natural products, biological and medicinal chemistry, nanotechnology, and surface chemistry.

Publishing Policy

The publishing policy of Australian Journal of Chemistry is to select the most important papers with the broadest significance to the wider chemistry community. Papers reporting incremental results that do not have sufficient originality and significance are unlikely to be accepted.

Professor Kenneth Seddon OBE, one of AJC’s longest-standing Editors, sadly passed away on 21 January from prostate cancer. Ken was one of the world's best ionic liquids experts. His consistent unwavering support, loyalty and advocacy for AJC over the last 10 years will be sorely missed.
