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.
Review articles are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results.
Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications. The concept of review article is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed.
