Consumption of anthocyanin-rich beverages affects Nrf2 and Nrf2-dependent gene transcription in peripheral lymphocytes and DNA integrity of healthy volunteers

Groh et al reported on how the consumption of anthocyanin-rich beverages affected Nrf2 and Nrf2-dependent gene transcription in human peripheral blood lymphocytes and DNA integrity, which is indicative for systemic effects.

Optimal partner wavelength combination method applied to NIR spectroscopic analysis of human serum globulin

In this study, Han et al rapidly analyzed human serum globulin using near infrared spectroscopy.The optimal partner wavelength combination method was employed and results provide important technical support for the rapid detection of serum samples.

Synthesis, biological evaluation and molecular docking analysis of vaniline-benzylidenehydrazine hybrids as potent tyrosinase inhibitors

Welcome to BMC Chemistry

New Content ItemBMC 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.

For further information please refer to our blog and list of FAQs explaining this change in more detail. 


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.
