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.

A novel approach for the synthesis of nanostructured Ag3PO4 from phosphate rock: high catalytic and antibacterial activities

Dânoun et al developed a novel approach to synthesize of nanostructured silver phosphate (Ag3PO4) using phosphate rock as alternative, natural source of PO43− precursor ions.


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.

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.

Valuable data often go unpublished when they could be helping to progress science.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.

You can publish your data in BMC Genomic Data (genomic, transcriptomic and high-throughput genotype data) or in BMC Research Notes (data from across all natural and clinical sciences). 

More information about our unique article type can be found on the BMC Genomic Data and BMC Research Notes journal websites.
