CrystEngComm is a peer-reviewed scientific journal publishing original (primary) research and review articles on all aspects of crystal engineering including properties, polymorphism, target materials and new or improved techniques and methods. CrystEngComm is published monthly by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

The editor of CrystEngComm is Dr Jamie Humphrey and the present chairman of the Editorial Board is Dr Lee Brammer, from the University of Sheffield, UK. The Editorial Board comprises leading international scientists who meet regularly to discuss all scientific matters concerned with the Journal; in particular the standards necessary for the acceptance of papers for publication, the standards of refereeing, and ways and means of acquiring suitable papers for publication.

The 2006 impact factor for CrystEngComm is 3.729.[1]

Authors submitting papers to CrystEngComm are encouraged to use full colour, movies and animated graphics to enhance their articles. CrystEngComm offers fast publication of research findings.

Significant and newsworthy articles appearing in CrystEngComm are also featured in the RSC supplements Chemical Science, Chemical Technology and Chemical Biology. CrystEngComm hosts the RSC publication, Chemical Technology.

CrystEngComm has a close association with the virtual web community, CrystEngCommunity.


Subject coverage

Properties: Thermodynamics, phase transitional behaviours, polymorphism, solid state reactivity, optoelectronics, non-linear optics (NLO), molecular and bulk magnetism, conductivity and superconductivity, absorption and desorption, mechanical.

Target Crystals/Materials: Ionic, molecular, covalent and coordination solids, coordination polymers, hydrogen-bonded solids, intermolecular interactions, biominerals and biomimetic materials, synthetic zeolites, liquid crystals, nano and mesoporous crystals, channelled structures.

Techniques: Single crystal X-ray and neutron diffraction, powder diffraction, solid state spectroscopy (IR, Raman, NMR etc.), calorimetry and thermogravimetry.

Methods: Modelling and data mining, as well as empirical, semi-empirical and ab-initio theoretical evaluation of solids and of intermolecular interactions.

Article types

CrystEngComm publishes the following types of articles: Research Papers (original scientific work that has not been published previously); Communications (preliminary accounts of original and significant work that merits urgent publication); and Highlights (short accounts of topics that are either of general current interest or the subject of scientific controversy in the field of crystal engineering).
