Aldrichimica Acta

Aldrichimica Acta Volume 51, No. 2
Current Issue

For over 50 years, the Aldrichimica Acta has been an open-access, international forum for the frontiers of chemical research. It publishes topical and insightful reviews, written by prominent chemists from around the world and covering a variety of topics usually based on a synthetic theme in organic, organometallic, or bio-organic chemistry. For the past 15 years, and in comparison to other international journals in the field of organic chemistry, the Acta has consistently been ranked in the top three both by Clarivate Analytics Impact Factor (out of 55+ journals)  and by SCImago’s Journal Rank indicator (out of 120+ journals).

The Acta is FREE.

Aldrichimica Acta 2019, Vol. 52, No. 1

Dr. Alfred Robert Bader

Painting Clues:

Dr. Alfred Robert Bader—co-founder of Aldrich Chemical Co. and Sigma-Aldrich Corp. (today a part of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany) and one of the most influential men in the chemical industry* since the mid-twentieth century—passed away peacefully on December 23, 2018, at the age of 94.

Dr. Bader founded and launched the Aldrichimica Acta in 1968. For about the first 24 years of its existence, the Acta cover featured paintings from Dr. Bader’s private collection, and he often wrote the “About Our Cover” commentary about the featured painting. A Harvard chemistry graduate, Alfred was also a renowned art connoisseur and avid art collector, who acquired the nickname The Chemist Collector. Until the end, Dr. Bader was a most enthusiastic supporter of, and advocate for, the Acta: He believed strongly in its value, eagerly anticipated each issue, requested copies of each, and distributed them to his visitors. He promoted the Acta wherever he went and whenever he could. He will be missed.
