Angewandte Chemie

Angewandte Chemie is the flagship of GDCh publications. The weekly journal is one of the top chemical journals worldwide in the Citation Index, a measure of the frequency of reading and the quality of the articles. The unique mix of excellent review articles, highlight articles and short communications guarantees that every chemist will find well-founded summaries of the latest results from all major research areas and also special, interdisciplinary sub-areas in a single journal. The annual publication of the lectures by the Nobel awardee in chemistry, often also in medicine and physics, has always been particularly appreciated. For research chemists, the "Angewandte" is required reading. The top international position of Angewandte Chemie is documented by its high journal impact factor, the most recent value of which is 16.823 (2021).

The early years of the German edition (since 1887) and the " International Edition in English " (since 1962) are now available electronically as "back files"!

Here you will find the latest press releases from the "Angewandte"

Chemistry Europe Journals

Chemistry - A European Journal has been part of the GDCh's range of journals for over 20 years. This weekly, modern European journal for publishing cutting-edge research is co-edited by 16 major European chemical societies from 15 countries with a total of 70,000 members united in Chemistry Europe and ranks among the top chemistry journals. The current impact factor is 5,160.

For the specialist areas of inorganic and organic chemistry, physical, biological and medicinal chemistry, the European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, European Journal of Organic Chemistry, ChemPhysChem, ChemBioChem and ChemMedChem are further recognized and high-quality journals that we publish together with our in Chemistry Europe organized European sister companies publish.

The latest offspring of this family are the journals Batteries & Supercaps, ChemSusChem, ChemCatChem, ChemPlusChem, ChemistryOpen, ChemElectroChem, ChemPhotoChem and ChemSystemsChem. Batteries & Supercaps is dedicated to the full spectrum of electrochemical energy storage and its applications. ChemSystemsChem covers all aspects of the emergence and complexity of chemical systems, including artificial cells, responsive materials and reaction networks.

The journal ChemistrySelect, first published in January 2016, supplements the existing offer. The contributions should cover all areas of chemistry and related disciplines.

The Online portal ChemistryViews offers short daily news reports on the latest from research and the chemical industry. There is also information on awards open for nomination and a comprehensive calendar of events.

Almost all magazines can also be read on mobile devices using apps. All the latest publications in all Chemistry Europe journals by scientists from Germany can be found here.

The complete volumes of the predecessor journals of the GDCh - Chemische Berichte and Liebigs Annalen - are available in digitized form as "back files".

Chemical Engineer Technology, ChemBioEng Reviews & CITplus

Chemie Ingenieur Technik is the most important German-language specialist journal for process engineering, technical chemistry, chemical apparatus engineering and biotechnology. Founded in 1928, this GDCh magazine is published today together with DECHEMA and the Society for Process Engineering and Chemical Engineering in the VDI ( GVC ). Parallel to the CIT, the CITplus appears as a practice magazine for users. Both journals are in the exclusive possession of the GDCh.

The ChemBioEng Reviews have existed since 2014. This journal publishes review articles that provide information on significant developments and fundamental knowledge in the field of chemical engineering and biotechnology .

Chemie in unserer Zeit

With Chemie in unserer Zeit, we offer exciting and understandably written articles from the entire spectrum of chemistry, through which everyone who is interested in chemistry can get an up-to-date overview of modern chemistry - from students to university lecturers, from committed pupils to teachers and chemists in all functions and branches. More information can be found here.
Schools have the opportunity to register for free Online access to ?Chemie in unserer Zeit?. Have we piqued your interest? Then simply send an email to and you will receive further information.

From the water

The journal is published by the Society of Water Chemistry, a Division in the German Chemical Society, and appears four times a year.

The journal follows the tradition of the series published from 1927 to 2004, but presents itself with a completely new concept. It offers more current and practice-relevant information for testing laboratories, authorities, water suppliers and waste disposal companies, environmental monitoring in industry and for applied research. Further information can be found here.

food chemistry

The journal of the Food Chemical Society - Division in the German Chemical Society is the organ of the Division and appears six times a year. She reports on work that deals with the production, analysis and processing of food, consumer goods and cosmetics. Publications from the diverse working Division of the food chemistry Section are also located here, as are original reports from practice, lecture presentations, announcements of advanced training events and Conferences as well as personal messages. You can find more information here


The magazine CHEMKON was founded in 1994 and has its origin in the announcements of the GDCh Division chemical education. Each issue offers interesting articles from the fields of didactics and teaching as well as school experiments. Regular rubrics keep the reader up to date on new regulations, curricula, Conferences, events, new publications on the book market and news from the Division.

Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry (ABC)

Together with Springer ( ), the GDCh has published the journal Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry (ABC; ) together with the French, Spanish, Italian, Swiss, Austrian and Polish chemical societies since 2002 which emerged from the merger of Fresenius' Journal of Analytical Chemistry, Analusis, Química Analítica and Chemical Analysis / Chemia Analityczna. In the first ten years of its existence, the journal has developed into one of the world's leaders in the field of analytical and bioanalytical chemistry.

Nachrichten aus der Chemie

Published by Wiley-VCH, the membership magazine " Nachrichten aus der Chemie " appears with a circulation of around 30,000. It is still affectionately called "The Blue Leaves" in chemists' circles after the paper color used in the past. The "Nachrichten" brings specialist articles from all disciplines of chemistry, market overviews and reports on the activities of the company. Many GDCh Divisions publish their own newsletters. Information on this can be found on the websites of the relevant Divisions. You can find the e-paper of the "Nachrichten aus der Chemie" under MyGDCh; "Special offers".
