Introducing the second issue of RSC Mechanochemistry


We are delighted to present issue two of RSC Mechanochemistry, the first journal dedicated to this transformative field.

Explore exciting new research and innovative applications across all areas of theoretical and experimental chemistry for free. RSC Mechanochemistry focuses on the publication of innovative research that advances the fundamental understanding and application of the use of mechanical force for driving and controlling chemical reactions and materials transformations in the gas, liquid, and solid states.


“As part of a leading scientific society, publishing with RSC Mechanochemistry offers authors a global reach, as well as opportunities to engage with a myriad of interest groups to help foster connections and spread the word on their research. Our outstanding Associate Editors and Editorial Board provide an exceptional breath to the journal, so authors can be assured that their manuscripts are in the hands of leading experts who are dedicated to publishing their impactful science.”

James Batteas, Co-Editor-in-Chief

This journal will be a game-changer for mechanochemistry experts and novices alike – for the first time, authors in mechanochemistry will have the opportunity to publish their original and innovative mechanochemistry research in a dedicated journal, affiliated with a leading international chemistry publishing society.
