The Journal of Natural Gas Chemistry , formerly sponsored by the Chengdu Institute of Organic Chemistry, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, has been a quarterly published academic journal with about 96 pages per issue since February 1992. From January 2002, the Journal will be jointly edited by the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics and the Chengdu Institute of Organic Chemistry, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and published by Science Press of China.
This Journal will function as a medium for reporting original research papers dealing with topics in the fields of natural gas chemistry, C1 chemistry, lower hydrocarbons chemistry as well as hydrogen energy sources. It is devoted to up-to-date progress in the following fields all over the world:
1. Direct and indirect conversions of methane.
2. Methane conversion by enzymatic and biological catalysis.
3. CO and CO 2 conversions.
4. Synthesis or conversion of lower hydrocarbons.
5. Synthesis of O-, S-, and N-containing derivatives of lower hydrocarbons.
6. Purification and separation processes concerning natural gas.
7. Characterization of catalysts relating to the above processes.
8. New approaches or processes of relevant fields.
The aim of the Journal is to transmit new information to readers who are scientific and technical workers of related research organizations and enterprises, as well as staff members, graduates and senior students of university departments of chemistry and chemical engineering, especially to those who are engaging in the chemistry and chemical processes of natural gas, petroleum and coal.
The Journal will also provide abstracts of new developments selected from relevant journals on catalysis and chemical engineering aspects concerning natural gas chemistry. We hope that with this Journal you will enjoy a useful and convenient source for obtaining the relevant research information from the whole world.
An article may be submitted in the form of Articles, Communications and Reviews. Submitting articles are accepted only in English, and submissions are requested to send to the Editorial Office of the Journal of Natural Gas Chemistry .
