Chemistry is the study of the properties, composition, and structure of matter, how they change, and the energy that is released or absorbed during the transformation. The Chemistry Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers and early-stage research. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps Chemistry scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
Chemistry is used to meet research goals across many disciplines. For important challenges ranging from energy storage and conversion to the discovery of new and better drugs, chemistry is an essential part of arriving at a solution. SSRN provides a platform for the sharing and discovery of traditional chemistry research, and also provides interesting and, sometimes, unlikely connections, helping scholars discover current research in related fields including material science, biology, pharmaceutical science, energy, and medicine.
