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.

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...

Physics supports biology: Researchers from PTB have developed a model system to investigate friction phenomena with atomic precision
Friction: what you want from car brakes, otherwise rather a nuisance. In any case, it is useful to know as precisely as possible how friction phenomena arise –...
