Publisher of the most cited open-access journals in their fields.
The section aims to publish significant basic and applied research findings on all aspects of Green and Environmental chemistry. We welcome papers on the following topics:
1) chemical and biochemical phenomena of the environment;
2) removal and replacement of toxic substances;
3) pollution prevention;
4) treatment of polluted areas and materials;
5) determination of basic functional mechanisms by which environmental systems operate;
6) solid, liquid, and gaseous pollutants;
7) field studies;
8) green syntheses;
9) environmental indicators;
10) methods to study and monitor the environment.
Our ultimate goal is to accelerate the communications in the field and to stimulate molecular research in all areas of Green and Environmental Chemistry.

Green and Environmental Chemistry welcomes submissions of the following article types: Book Review, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Green and Environmental Chemistry, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Green and Environmental Chemistry will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Chemistry and Environmental Science.
