Progress in Reaction Kinetics & Mechanism is an international journal for the quarterly publication of both in-depth reviews and research papers.
In-depth reviews are comprehensive accounts bringing together work from many sources with the aim of providing an article of lasting value that will become established as the reference source in the particular subject. Research papers, on the other hand, will be original and normally focus on a relatively new or recently developed field or technique, and will include a state-of-the-art account of the subject and may well refer to a narrower range of existing work. It covers the fields of kinetics and mechanisms of chemical processes in the gas phase and solution of both simple and complex systems.
Progress in Reaction Kinetics and Mechanism presents results from the fields of kinetics and mechanisms of chemical processes in the gas phase and solution of both simple and complex systems. Primarily a vehicle for publishing original research papers and occasional reviews in reaction kinetics and mechanism, its scope is very wide, covering atoms, small molecules and free radicals in the gas phase (relevant to combustion, atmospheric chemistry, etc.), solution reactions (including those of organic molecules, polymers and inorganic complexes, the latter when directed towards developing energy storage devices and new catalysts for effecting established reactions but at lower energy cost and higher efficiency). A number of papers are on computational chemistry, notably the use of Density Functional Theory to explain or predict the course of chemical reactions of all types.
