Organometallics is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the American Chemical Society. As of May 2012, the editor-in-chief is John A. Gladysz. Organometallics publishes records in one of the most active fields for organometallic, inorganic, organic, and materials chemists. Articles, communications, mini-reviews, and notes detail the synthesis, structure, bonding, chemical reactivity and reaction mechanisms, and applications of organometallic and organometalloidal compounds....
The Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 1950 and published by the American Chemical Society. The current editor-in-chief, James N. Seiber, has served as editor of the journal since 1999. His career has included positions in industry, government, and academia. He is an emeritus faculty member in the Department of Environmental Toxicology at the University of California, Davis. This journal publishes cutting edge original research...
The Journal of the American Chemical Society is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 1879 by the American Chemical Society. The journal has absorbed two other journals in history: the Journal of Analytical and Applied Chemistry (1893) and American Chemical Journal (1914). It is published on a weekly basis and is edited by Peter J. Stang (University of Utah). This journal publishes original research papers in all fields pertaining to chemistry and publishes nearly 16,000 pages...
