ChemPubSoc Europe is an organization of 16 European chemical societies with approx. 85,000 members, and in partnership with Wiley-VCH publishes some of the most respected publications in chemistry. It was founded on the initiative of the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh, German Chemical Society), the owner of the flagship journal Angewandte Chemie. Wiley-VCH also publishes industry-leading books and journals in this market, and this partnership gives unparalleled access to the best authors and scientists, and an impressive market reach to chemists worldwide.
ChemistryViews.org is designed to address the information needs of this global community. Uniquely presenting its content through both a subject channeled approach as well as a thematic view, the site allows chemists to quickly and logically drill-down to focused content in their field, and to easily access related material, both free to view and peer-reviewed. Logical site navigation has long been cited as a key requirement by scientists eager to find and browse content quickly, and a research project into user needs has driven the interface and information structure of the new site.
ChemistryViews.org will be developed continuously according to the needs of its users. The first feature upgrade of the platform is already planned for August, and a suite of advanced features, alerting services to new peer-reviewed content and video blogs are planned for early release.
ChemistryViews was launched at a major gathering of world-leading chemists in Paris on May 21, an event streamed live to a global audience in what was a first for the chemistry community. The Frontiers of Chemistry event celebrated 10 years of the major ChemPubSoc Europe journals ChemBioChem and ChemPhysChem and brought 10 world-renowned speakers, including four Nobel laureates, to the Maison de Chimie. The event was broadcast live over the internet through a virtual event platform. An archive of the event is available from the ChemistryViews site.
Editor-in-Chief of ChemViews is Dr. Vera Köster.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
