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.
It is also peer-review week and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of RSC Advances reviewers and in particular the members of RSC Advances Reviewer Panel for their hard work and support of the journal. The RSC Advances Reviewer Panel is made up of global expert reviewers from across the chemical sciences and all at post-PhD career stages. In this blog collection, a selection of some of the excellent articles published in RSC Advances by our Reviewer Panel members is showcased.

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!
