Objective This journal is committed to the publication of short communications, original research, and review articles within the field of main group metal and semi-metal chemistry. Main Group Metal Chemistry is an open-access, single-blind peer-reviewed journal that publishes in ongoing way. Papers addressing the theoretical, spectroscopic, mechanistic and synthetic aspects of inorganic, coordination and organometallic main group metal and semi-metal compounds, including zinc, cadmium and mercury are welcome. The journal also publishes studies relating to environmental aspects of these metals, their toxicology, release pathways and fate. Articles on the applications of main group metal chemistry, including in the fields of polymer chemistry, agriculture, electronics and catalysis, are also accepted.
