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 2017, Vol. 50, No. 3

Eduard Gaertner (1801–1877)

City Hall at Thorn, 1848

Painting Clues:

To appreciate how amazingly exact Gaertner’s cityscapes generally are, compare the view of City Hall at Thorn (Prussia) that he painted in 1848 with a recent photograph of the same view of the town hall in the city of Toruń (now in Poland). It is as if time has stopped between 1848 and 2017! A photo of the present-day Old City Town Hall can be viewed at or at
