Editorial policy

Johnson Matthey Technology Review publishes articles, reviews and short reports on science driving down transport emissions, transforming energy systems, decarbonising chemicals production and creating a circular economy.

Areas of application and fundamental science will be considered in the fields of:

  • Sustainable technologies: sustainable industry, low carbon, ‘green’ chemistry, recycling, life cycle analysis and the circular economy 
  • Catalysis: The development and investigation of new and improved heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysts and biocatalysis
  • Characterisation: Characterisation of industrially relevant materials including catalysts using established or novel techniques
  • Chemical and industrial processes: Process optimisation, catalysis, engineering and design for bulk and speciality chemicals and the energy industry 
  • Digitalisation: Development of laboratory informatics platforms for data sharing; the use of artificial intelligence or machine learning for data analysis and modelling in industrial applications
  • Electrochemistry: For energy conversion, generation, storage and transformation applications in automotive and other industries, for example fuel cells, electrolytic (green) hydrogen and the creation of chemicals
  • Emissions control: Control of automotive and stationary emissions by precious and base metal catalysis; legislative developments
  • Historical: History of Johnson Matthey, and historical developments in science affecting the chemical industry and sustainability
  • Material design and metallurgy: Design and engineering of metals, alloys and materials for industrial applications
  • PGM and specialist metallurgy: Fundamentals and applications of platinum group metals, their unique properties and applications in glass, catalysis and other industries; refining and recycling of pgms; sustainable technologies
  • Surface chemistry and coatings: Molecular level understanding of gas and liquid interactions at solid surfaces and their application in industry
