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 titles from Holleman/Wiberg and Riedel, as well as the German edition of Huheey/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 online references. One database, launched in 2016, was developed in collaboration with IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) for their standards and recommendations. Another online reference (Anorganik Online), launched in 2017, combines the outstanding and historic knowledge collected in our German Inorganic Chemistry book program.
