Traditionally chemistry combines diverse disciplines ranging from inorganic and organic chemistry to physical and theoretical chemistry as well as biochemistry and analytics.

Especially in the German-speaking world, De Gruyter is renowned for its publications in the inorganic chemistry field, including in particular the textbook titles from Holleman/Wiberg and Riedel, as well as the German edition of Huhey/Keiter and Keiter.

Current chemistry research is increasingly interdisciplinary in nature and application-driven. Hence there are also overlaps with physics, materials science, biology, (bio) technology and computer science, which can also be found in De Gruyter’s excellent portfolio.

In addition to books, De Gruyter’s chemistry portfolio also includes journals and, from 2016, a database. The latter is being developed in collaboration with the IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) for their Standards and Recommendations.
