    Of Chemistry, Molecular Sciences and Chemical Engineering




Aims and Scope of the module

Chemistry, Molecular Sciences and Chemical Engineering will cover all aspects of this interdisciplinary area of study. This comprehensive online work will form the definitive source for those entering, researching or teaching in any of many disciplines making up this interdisciplinary area of study. By integrating the multidisciplinary aspects into one unique reference source on Science Direct. In addition to a regular supply of new Contributions, all previously published Contributions will be reviewed for currency in a manner and according to a schedule determined by the Publisher.

Contributions that are determined to be current according to this review will receive a “timestamp” that will appear on the Contribution on Science Direct indicating the date of the last currency review. Contributions that are determined to require an update may be updated at the Contribution or Contribution Component level in a manner and according to a schedule determined by the Publisher.

These updates may be completed by the original Contributor(s) or by an Updater under the Editorial Direction of the Editor-in-Chief and the Subject Editors. In this way the Work provides the assurance of up-to -date content that has been vetted by a highly qualified Editorial Board and date-stamped to mark the date of the last review or update.

The central organizing structure for the Work is a Subject Hierarchy that will be displayed alongside the Contributions on Science Direct to provide Context for each Contribution and to provide a navigational tool for users to explore the subject area.

Contributions are written by individuals and/or groups of experts in the field under the guidance of Subject Editors who are guided by the Editor-in-Chief. The Contributions are written at a level that allows upper-undergraduate students to understand the material, while providing active researchers, whether in academia or corporations, with an authoritative and up-to-date source of foundational reference material for all aspects of the field and its neighboring disciplines. It is intended to be both an educational and teaching aid, and contains ancillary material to this end.

A provisional list of topics includes, but is not limited to:




• Analytical chemistry and chemometrics
• Radiochemistry
• Synthetic organic chemistry and synthetic methods
• Physical organic chemistry and heterocycles;
