Aims & Scope



Welcome to Tetrahedron Chem, our latest flagship Open Access title, focused on exciting new results in organic synthesis.

Efficient, sustainable and selective methods to create target organic molecules has driven significant advances across the chemical sciences. In response, our dedicated editorial team are working to support and include a global and diverse community of organic chemists. Tetrahedron Chem will publish significant advances and insights from those working directly in this field as well as those working at the interfaces of biology and materials science.

The scope covers all fundamental and applied aspects of organic chemistry.

Key research areas include but are not limited to:
  • Synthetic methodology
  • Catalysis
  • Next generation chemical building blocks for drug discovery
  • Sustainable synthesis
  • Natural product synthesis
  • Supramolecular and polymer synthesis
  • Functional organic materials
  • Physical organic chemistry and mechanistic studies
  • Computational methods in synthesis


We also welcome the use of machine-learning towards molecule design and reactivity, automated approaches to organic synthesis and other interdisciplinary areas as they emerge.

Tetrahedron Chem publishes high quality original research articles, short communications, mini-reviews, full reviews and perspectives, offering a fast and fair peer review process and article level promotion.
