Description

The Russian Journal of General Chemistry (Zhurnal obshchei khimii) is a major journal in the field of scientific chemistry, with a unique pedigree: it is the successor to Russia's first chemical journal, Zhurnal Russkogo Khimicheskogo Obshchestva (The Journal of the Russian Chemical Society), founded in 1869. Today, the journal focuses on new achievements and long-term results in many related disciplines in chemistry, including organometallics, organometalloids, organo-inorganic complexes, mechanochemistry, nanochemistry, and more. The journal publishes reviews, current scientific papers, letters to the editor, discussion papers, book reviews, announcements and reports on scientific conferences. The journal benefits researchers at scientific and research institutes, academics, researchers and students at universities, and specialists in many branches of the chemical industry.
