The Journal of Physical Chemistry B publishes scientific articles reporting research on several fields of material chemistry (macromolecules, soft matter, and surfactants) as well as statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, and biophysical chemistry. It has been published weekly since 1997 by the American Chemical Society.
Due to the growing amount of research in the fields it covers, the journal was split into two at the beginning of 1997, with the Journal of Physical Chemistry C specializing in nanostructures, the structures and properties of surfaces and interfaces, electronics, and related topics. These topics were generally included in the Journal of Physical Chemistry B prior to 2007.
The most recent impact factor is 4.189 (2008). In 2005, it received an impact factor of 4.03. In 2004, it received an impact factor of 3.834, which placed it second in the category of Physical Chemistry journals.
