Extracts of medicinal plants with natural deep eutectic solvents: enhanced antimicrobial activity and low genotoxicity

Grozdanova et al report on the potential of natural deep eutectic solvents (NADES) for extraction of bioactive constituents of medicinal plants and further suggest that NADES can improve the effects of bioactive extracts.

The high photocatalytic efficiency and stability of LaNiO3/g-C3N4 heterojunction nanocomposites for photocatalytic water splitting to hydrogen

Ye et al report that a LaNiO3/g-C3N4 nanocomposite showed enhanced photocatalytic water splitting activity compared with pure LaNiO3 and g-C3N4, facilitated by to the Z-scheme charge carrier transfer pathway.

New insights into prediction of weak π–π complex association through proton-nuclear magnetic resonance analysis

This report by Lin et al is expected to improve proton-NMR analysis for interpretation of weak π–π complexation in liquid and contribute to the applications in various related research fields.

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.
