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.

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale
Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University...
For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
