RSC Advances 10th Anniversary: Highly cited articles

In 2011 the Royal Society of Chemistry published the first issue of RSC Advances, and to celebrate our 10th anniversary we would like to share with you some of the very best articles that have been published in the journal throughout the years.

In this blog collection some of the most highly cited papers published in RSC Advances are showcased, demonstrating the consistency over time and our commitment to publishing quality research across the breadth of the chemical sciences.

Find out more about the history of RSC Advances and how we got to where we are today in the Editorial: RSC Advances: celebrating 10 years of publication.

We will continue to celebrate RSC Advances 10th Anniversary over the next few months and we look forward to sharing more articles and activities with you – follow us on Twitter or sign up for RSC Advances news for updates on our anniversary celebrations.

We hope you enjoy our 10th Anniversary collections!
