Chemical Communications

Prof. Tian Yang, dean of ECNU’s School of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering, was recently appointed as associate editor and a member of the editorial board of Chemical Communications.


Chemical Communications is a scientific journal published by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) in Britain, which is one of the most important academic societies in the field of chemistry. Chemical Communications mainly reports the latest progress in the field of chemistry. It is not confined to reporting findings in traditional disciplines alone, but focuses on interdisciplinary research and the latest innovations and practical applications in science and technology as well. In order to publish the latest research progress in the earliest time possible, the journal requires its contributions to be innovative, short and concise.
