Indexing and Archiving

Core fields covered

Organic chemistry

Edelweiss: Chemical Science is a scholarly journal maintaining high standards of scientific excellence and its editorial board ensures a rapid peer review process. Organic chemistry is branch of chemistry that deals with the different study of properties, structure and reactions of a compound. The study of organic reactions involves chemical synthesis of drugs, polymers and natural products which also includes the study of individual organic molecules in the laboratory. The organic chemistry mainly deals with the carbon and hydrogen properties. Depending on the melting point, boiling point and solubility the organic compound may be identified.

The organic compounds are classified into several types

Functional groups

Functional group is usually a molecular module. Major part of organic chemistry is the concept of functional group which is used to classify structures and to predict the properties of the compounds. Functional groups have significant impact on the chemical and physical properties of the organic compounds. Organic compounds are classified according to functional groups, alcohols, carboxylic acids, amines, etc.

Aliphatic compounds

Edelweiss: Chemical Science Journal is committed to publish top-tier original research in all areas of chemistry and related fields through a fair and rigorous review process. According to the state of saturation aliphatic hydrocarbons are subdivided into three groups of homologous series. Alkanes (paraffins): aliphatic hydrocarbons with a single bond, i.e. just C-C, C-H single bonds. Alkenes (olefins): aliphatic hydrocarbons with one or more double bonds, i.e. di-olefins (dienes) or poly-olefins. Alkynes (acetylenes): aliphatic hydrocarbons with one or more triple bonds.

Further classification is based on the functional groups for compounds which can be "straight-chain", branched-chain or cyclic. The cycloalkenes and the cycloalkynes contain multiple bonds whereas cycloalkanes do not.

Aromatic compounds

Conjugated double bonds are present in aromatic hydrocarbon that is every carbon atom in the ring is sp2 hybridized which allows stability. The configuration of 4n conjugated pi electrons shows instability (antiaromaticity).

Edelweiss publications review process is done by their active Editorial Board Members only, which help in reducing the timeline for publishing the manuscript after submission. Edelweiss Publications Inc, is running since three years with many more journals related to different science topics.

 Heterocyclic compounds

Edelweiss: Chemical Science is a double blind peer reviewed Open Access journal that aims to publish most complete and reliable source of information on the findings and current developments in all areas of the field and making them freely available to everyone immediately after publication. The presence of heteroatoms alters the features of the cyclic hydrocarbons which can be exocyclic (attached externally to the ring) or endocyclic (member of the ring itself). The ring in the latter case is termed as heterocycle. Aromatic heterocycles are furan and pyridinen whereaspiperidine and tetrahydrofuran are alicyclic heterocycles. oxygen, sulfur, nitrogen are particularly the heteroatoms of heterocyclic compounds.

Aniline dyes and medicines are the products where heterocycles are usually present. They are also present in wide range of biochemical compounds such as steroids, vitamins, alkaloids and nucleic acids.

Inorganic chemistry

Edelweiss: Chemical Science publishes manuscripts on inorganic chemistry. The synthesis and behavior of inorganic and organometallic compounds is dealt in inorganic chemistry. It covers all the chemical compounds of organic chemistry except the myriad organic compounds (carbon based compounds, usually containing C-H bonds). It has wide applications in the field of chemical industry which includes materials science, pigments, surfactants, catalysis, fuels, coatings, agriculture and medications.

 Chemical analysis

Edelweiss: Chemical Science journal promotes studies on chemical analysis for betterment of society. The study of the chemical composition and structure of substances is called chemical analysis. Analytical chemistry methods are used to separate, identify, and quantify substance. The method usually depends on chemical reactions between the reagent that is added to the analyte and the material being analyzed (the analyte). Qualitative analysis and quantitative analysis are the two methods used in the analytical chemistry. Qualitative analysis identifies those compounds and elements present in unknown sample material. The amount by the weight of each element or compound present is determined by quantitative analysis. Important modern methods used in the analysis of chemicals are Gas and paper chromatography. Gas chromatography is used in many different ways like to detect bombs at the airports and in the forensic labs to analyze blood at crime the crime scene. Paper chromatography is the most common method where paper strip is used as the stationary phase where solutes get separated by pulling up solvents using capillary action.

Spectrofluorimetric Study on Inclusion Interaction of Beta Cyclodextrin with Bimatoprost: Challenging to Green Analytical Applications

Author: Maha A Elabd


Fluorescence  study  on  inclusion  interaction  of  bimatoprost  in  absence  and  presence  of β-cyclodextrin  shows  significant  increase  in  native fluorescence of bimatoprost in the presence of β-cyclodextrin. Fluorescence spectroscopy of host-guest interaction between bimatoprost and β-cyclodextrin  shows  formation  of  inclusion  complex  with  1:1  stoichiometric  ratio.  The changes  of  native  fluorescence  of  bimatoprost  on inclusion  in  the  hydrophobic  β-cyclodextrin  cavity is  used  to  calculate  the  association  constant.The  fluorimetric  method  was  used  for determination of bimatoprost in absence and presence of 1% (w/v) β-cyclodextrin. The studied drug shows native fluorescence at λem 285 after excitation at λex 217 nm in water. The quantum yield [QY] was calculated in absence and presence of β-CD and it was found to be increased from 0.26 to 0.31. The different experimental parameters affecting the fluorescence of the drug was carefully studied and optimized.  Linearity was over the range of 25–250 ng/mL and 5–50 ng/mL in absence and presence of β-CD, respectively with detection limits of 0.05 and 0.006 ng/mL, and quantitation limits of 0.18, and 0.02 ng/mL in absence and presence of β-CD, respectively. The proposed methods were validated as per ICH guidelines, and were effectively applied to analysis of studied drug in its ophthalmic formulation. The results obtained were statistically compared  with  the  reported  method  revealing  high  accuracy  and  good  precision.  The proposed methods are challenging to green. Qualitative and quantitative metrics revealed excellent eco-friendly fluorimetric method for application in QC laboratories.
