The launch of Materials Chemistry Frontiers is the result of a joint venture between the Chinese Chemical Society and the Royal Society of Chemistry, supported by the Institute of Chemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences… …  As its name implies, Materials Chemistry Frontiers aims to publish high-quality work with great impact at the frontiers of materials research. The journal encourages multidisciplinary research with a spirit of collaboration. Emphasis will be given to conceptually new studies that may change our way of thinking… …” said by Editor-in-Chief Ben Zhong Tang in his editorial “Pushing forward the frontiers of materials research(Mater. Chem. Front., 2017, 1, 10-11).

We envision Materials Chemistry Frontiers to be the top level journal that brings the best materials research from China, Asian and rest of the world to the global audiences. And we kindly ask you to support the journal through your high quality submissions and contributions in this dynamic field of research.

We’re confident the quality and diversity of the journal content speak for themselves, so – with all articles published in volumes 1 and 2 free to access on registration – we invite you to decide for yourself.  Enjoy reading!
