The study of the characteristics and uses of the various materials, such as metals, ceramics, and plastics used in science and technology and that are incorporated with the elements of physics and chemistry, and is at the forefront of nano science and nanotechnology research. The scientists of material chemistry must study how the atoms, ions and molecules arranged and bonded to each other. It represents one of the major growth sectors in pure and applied chemistry and accounts for a significant fraction of all publications in the chemical sciences. Chemistry began, and largely continues today, to be inextricably associated with preparing, processing, and utilizing materials, both natural and synthetic. The simple synthesizing of a new chemical substance in nano- or macroscopic form is not materials chemistry its just chemical synthesis. It is considered to be material chemistry, an element of application, function, or design needs to be present.
High-impact journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
