ACS Materials Letters is the Home of Transformative Materials Research

ACS Materials Letters launched in 2019 with the goal of becoming the home of transformative materials research. The journal is achieving this with a focus on publishing high-quality and urgent papers at the forefront of fundamental and applied research, at the interface between materials and other disciplines, such as chemistry, engineering, and biology.

Now in its second year, ACS Materials Letters has published more than 400 peer-reviewed articles from corresponding authors representing nearly 30 countries worldwide. The journal achieved a partial Impact Factor of 8.312 in its first year of eligibility, along with a Cite Score of 2.9, based on almost 1,200 citations.

Thank you to all of the authors and readers that have made ACS Materials Letters the “Home of Transformative Materials Research” in such a short time. We appreciate your support, and we look forward to continuing to work together to reach new heights in 2022 and beyond by continuing to publish and showcase research addressing global challenges.

In celebration of two years of transformative materials research, the journal curated a list of dynamic papers across some of our most important topical areas, including energy, catalysis, functional materials, and the environment.
