Developments in Physical & Theoretical Chemistry

Aim & scope

With the series Developments in Physical & Theoretical Chemistry, Elsevier introduces a collection of volumes that highlight timely and important developments in this interdisciplinary field. The series aims to present useful and timely reference works dealing with significant areas of research in which there is rapid growth.

Through the contributions of specialists, these volumes provide essential background on appropriate and relevant topics and provide surveys of the literature at a level to be useful to advanced students and researchers.

Developments in Physical & Theoretical Chemistry

In this way, the volumes will address the underlying theoretical and experimental background on the topics for researchers entering the topic fields and function as useful reference works of lasting value. A primary goal for the volumes in the series is to provide a strong educational thrust for advanced study in particular fields. Each volume will have an editor who is intimately involved in work constituting the topic of the volume. Although contributions to volumes in the series will include those of established scholars, contributions from those who are rising in prominence will also be included.


The series is designed to enable researchers in both academia and industry to efficiently keep abreast of developments in topics from both Physical and Theoretical Chemistry.
