Chinese Chemical Letters
The official journal of the Chinese Chemical Society
Chinese Chemical Letters was founded in July 1990. The journal publishes preliminary accounts in the whole field of chemistry, satisfying a real and urgent need for the dissemination of research results, especially hot topics. In a way, it has become a show window of important chemical literature of China. For this purpose, articles in the journal are only written in English. The journal does not accept articles previously published or scheduled to be published. After publication of the communication in the journal, it can be expanded to a full paper and published else-where. Authors are requested to send papers of 2-4 pages. Papers of other than 2-4 pages are not acceptable.
Manuscripts should be sent directly to the Editorial Office of Chinese Chemical Letters.
