Development and application of green and sustainable analytical methods for flavonoid extraction from Passiflora waste

da Silva Francischini et al showcase their work on the development, application and comparison of conditions for the extraction of isoorientin, orientin and isovitexin from passion fruit applying solid–liquid methodologies, followed by analyte quantification using UHPLC-PDA.

Structural basis of the anti-ageing effects of polyphenolics: mitigation of oxidative stress

Rolt and Cox use this review to describe the structural basis underlying the pharmacology of polyphenols towards ROS and related biochemical pathways involved in age-related disease, and further focus on the structural requirements for the direct scavenging of reactive oxygen/nitrogen species such as radicals as well as coordination of a broader antioxidant response.

Conversion among photo-oxidative products of polypropylene in solid, liquid and gaseous states

In this paper, Liu and Yang investigate photo-oxidative products of commercial and unstabilized polypropylene in solid, liquid and gaseous states by using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, pyrolysis-gas chromatography/mass spectrometry and gas chromatography.

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.
