Aim and scope

ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is an interdisciplinary journal publishing original research at the interface of materials science, engineering, bio-related sciences, and chemistry. The journal is devoted to reports of new and original experimental and theoretical research of an applied nature. The emphasis is on papers that integrate knowledge in the areas of materials science, engineering, bio-related sciences, and chemistry into important applications. Among the basic areas the journal covers are advanced active and passive electronic, optical (including photonic), and magnetic materials, films, coatings, colloids, biomaterials and biointerfaces, polymer materials, hybrid and composite materials, nanomaterials, material stability, degradation and wear, and green/sustainable materials. Example applications include (but are not limited to) electronic, optical and electro-optical devices, sensors, biosensors, biocides, cell growth, diagnostics, coatings and adhesives, separation, catalysis, functional and active surfaces, patterning, membranes, energy conversion and storage, imaging (including bioimaging), and information processing and storage. Manuscripts that are essentially reporting data or applications of data are, in general, not suitable for publication in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. All manuscripts are subject to critical, anonymous peer review. It is to be understood that the final decision relating to a manuscript’s suitability rests solely with the Editor. Corresponding authors will receive 50 free electronic reprints via an Electronic Reprint URL. There are no page charges associated with ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.
