In celebration of the 6th EuChemS Conference on Green and Sustainable Chemistry, a series of journals across the Royal Society of Chemistry are hosting a themed collection to celebrate research in this area. As a global society publisher, the RSC positions itself as a leading voice for the chemical sciences, which puts sustainability in the spotlight. We recognise the potential of the chemical sciences to provide innovative solutions to the most pressing challenges – and the importance of giving a platform to scientists whose discoveries catalyse global change.
The journals that are available to receive submissions in response to this open call include Catalysis Science & Technology, Green Chemistry, RSC Advances, Reaction Chemistry & Engineering and RSC Sustainability.
This collection will celebrate both the vibrant and collaborative spirit of the conference, and the contribution green & sustainable chemistry makes to solving global challenges.
The scope of this collection covers the breadth of green & sustainable chemistry, with emphasis on the following areas:
- Alternative fuels and green energy
- Benign low-energy chemical processes
- Biomass and CO2 utilization
- Green chemistry metrics and environmental assessment
- Pollution prevention and remediation
- Sustainable catalytic, industrial and synthetic processes
- Waste recycling and valorisation and the circular (bio)economy
The submission deadline is 1st April 2024.
Manuscripts should be submitted via the Royal Society of Chemistry’s online submission service and the Editorial Office informed by email. Please state the code “XX6GCEUC24” in the “Comments to the Editor” submission question when you submit your manuscript, to indicate that this is a submission for the themed collection.
Please note that while we welcome submissions to all journals listed above, we are unable to guarantee peer review or eventual acceptance in your chosen journal. If a submission is not found to be suitable for the chosen journal, we will endeavour to find the most suitable home within the portfolio of journals included.
The Editorial Office reserves the right to check suitability of submissions in relation to the scope of the collection and inclusion of accepted articles in the collection is not guaranteed. All manuscripts will be subject to the journal’s usual peer review process. Accepted manuscripts will be added to the online collection as soon as they are online and they will be published in a regular issue of the journal.
