Aims and scope
BMC Chemistry, formerly known as Chemistry Central Journal, is an open access, peer reviewed journal that publishes in the diverse field of chemistry, ranging from organic, inorganic and physical chemistry to medicinal and analytical contributions, as well as articles covering chemistry in the fields of environment and energy, materials and macromolecules, agriculture and food, and green and sustainable processes.
We are committed to supporting the community by welcoming content that evaluates fundamental concepts, highlights new developments, and promotes the application of chemical sciences in a broad range of research areas and industries. By providing an inclusive platform, we want to aid the advancement of chemical sciences and all associated research disciplines.

High pressure systems as sustainable extraction and pre-treatment technologies for a holistic corn stover biorefinery
This review by Noppawan et al reports on supercritical carbon dioxide extraction and high-pressure carbon dioxide pre-treatment technologies for valorisation of corn stover agricultural residues. A particular focus is on showing how these technologies can aid in the creation of a holistic biorefineries.
Synthesis of 4,4′-(arylmethylene)bis(3-methyl-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-5-ols) and evaluation of their antioxidant and anticancer activities
Pyrazoles exhibit diverse biological activities and cancer treatments carrying this structural motif have previously been approved. Cadena-Cruz at al synthetized and characterized various pyrazole derivatives and tested their effects on cancer cells.
Get credit for your data!
Valuable data often go unpublished when they could be helping to progress science. Hence, the BMC Series introduced Data notes, a short article type allowing you to describe your data and publish them to make your data easier to find, cite and share.
BMC Chemistry, formerly known as Chemistry Central Journal, is now part of the BMC series.
Chemistry Central Journal has served the chemistry community as a trusted open access resource for more than 10 years – and we are delighted to announce the next step on its journey. In January 2019 the journal has been renamed BMC Chemistry and now strengthens the BMC series footprint in the physical sciences by publishing quality articles and by pushing the boundaries of open chemistry.
BMC Series Focus Issues
In celebration of World Environment Day on the 5th June, the BMC Series presents a focus issue on Water and Sanitation. We have collated open-access content from across our journals to highlight research into clean water, investigating links between water and health and our overall relationship with water.
With Mental Health Awareness Month in May, the BMC Series presents a focus issue on ‘Understanding Mental Health’. We have brought together content to highlight research into understanding and improving mental health.
