Accurate quantitative descriptions of chemical processes
Modern developments of mechanisms and mathematical models
Combined chemical-material experience and physical measurement methodology
Broad range of contributions of mainly experimental character
Short review times
Objective Zeitschrift für Physikalische Chemie (ZPC), founded in 1887, covers the main developments in physical chemistry with emphasis on experimental and theoretical research. It represents a combination of reaction kinetics and spectroscopy, quantum theory, surface research and electrochemistry, thermodynamics and structure analysis of matter in its various conditions. Short times for peer review and publication can be guaranteed for high quality submissions.
Wilhelm Ostwald, who established Physical Chemistry as a special discipline, founded the journal in 1887 together with Jacobus Henricus van’t Hoff. 1954 Zeitschrift für Physikalische Chemie was separated into an East German and a West German Edition. The two editions were reunited in 1991.
