The image shows molecular structures of block copolymer nanofibres in solution, showing the solvated corona chains and the sub-nanometre crystalline core lattice.

June issue out

Read about polymer nanofibre structures, CO2 activation catalysts, black phosphorus film synthesis, and superconducting puddles in cuprates. We also feature a Review on antiferromagnetic spintronics.


  • The Nobel prize medal for Chemistry

    The 2022 Nobel Prize in Chemistry has been awarded to Carolyn R. Bertozzi, Morten Meldal and K. Barry Sharpless for the development of click chemistry and bioorthogonal chemistry. Here, the Nature Portfolio presents a selection of research, review, news and opinion articles that highlight the development of click chemistry and bioorthogonal chemistry over the past two decades.

Nature Materials is a Transformative Journal; authors can publish using the traditional publishing route OR via immediate gold Open Access.

Our Open Access option complies with funder and institutional requirements.


  • Ferroelectrics have already impacted scientific research and commercial applications, but they still show plenty of potential to surprise.

  • Increasing chemical complexity expands the design space and drives the coupling of materials science and computational techniques.

  • A measure of the impact of scientific papers indicates that they are on average becoming less disruptive — this could reflect changes in the scientific community.


Computational Materials Design

Computation plays a vital role in the analysis of the materials that are needed to address current complex needs such as energy, information technology, or operations under extreme conditions.
