Advances in Chemical Research (ACR) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of chemistry. 

As well as reflecting the traditional core subjects of analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, the journal also features a broad range of chemical research in areas including, but not limited to, catalysis, computational and theoretical, environmental, green , medicinal, nuclear, polymer, supramolecular and surface chemistry. Other cross-disciplinary topics, such as bioinorganic, bio-organic, organometallic and physical–organic chemistry, will also be featured. 

Main research areas include (but are not limited to):
Organic chemistry
Inorganic chemistry
Physical chemistry
Chemical biology
Analytical chemistry
Supramolecular chemistry
Theoretical chemistry
Computational chemistry
Green chemistry
Structural chemistry
Energy and environmental chemistry

Chemical Thermodynamics

Submission Deadline: November 01, 2021 (Open) Submit Now


Chemical thermodynamics is a study of the interrelation of heat and chemical reactions or physical changes within the confines of the laws of thermodynamics.

There are 3 laws of thermodynamics:

1. The energy of the universe is constant.

2. In any spontaneous process, there is always an increase in entropy of the universe.

3. The entropy of a perfect crystal (well-ordered) at 0 Kelvin is zero.

The structure of chemical thermodynamics is based on the first two laws of thermodynamics. Chemical thermodynamics involves not only laboratory measurements of various thermodynamic properties, but also the application of mathematical methods to the study of chemical questions and the spontaneity of processes.
