“CONDENSED MATTER AND INTERPHASES” was founded by Dr. Sci. (Phys.-Math.), Dr. Sci. (Chem.), Prof. A.M. Khoviv (Voronezh State University) under the support of the Kurnakov Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry RAS in January 1999.


The scientific journal “CONDENSED MATTER AND INTERPHASES” is issued four times a year. The journal is the leading scientific publication in Russia on key problems of condensed matter and physico-chemical processes at the interfaces and in the volume.

The journal is aimed at the publishing the results of new scientific and practical research at the intersection of modern branches of chemistry and condensed matter physics, materials science and nanoindustry, solid state chemistry, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, as well as at the exchange by relevant scientific information on the following fields:

  • Atomic, Electronic and Cluster Structure of Solid State, Liquids and Interphases.
  • Phase Equilibrium and Defect Formation.
  • Kinetics and Dynamics of “Cluster-Fractal” Transformation at First-Order Phase Transitions.
  • Laser Thermochemistry and Photo-Induced Processes on Solid State Surface.
  • Physico-Chemistry of Thin Films and Heterostructures.
  • Kinetics and Mechanism of Thin Film Formation.
  • Electrochemical Processes on Interphases.
  • Chemistry of Surface Phenomena on Adsorbents.
  • Devices and New Methods for Investigations.

The task of the journal is to acquaint the scientific community of Russia with the current state of the problems of the condensed matter and interphase, to focus attention on unsolved problems in theory and practice; to expand the audience of readers by attracting specialists from related fields of chemical science, thereby raising the level of discussion and quality of published materials.

The main place in the journal is given to original articles describing the results of major projects being developed and completed studies. Along with the original scientific articles, the journal publishes summary reviews prepared according to a special order of the editorial office, and short messages (no more than 4 pages in length).

The journal is international in scope; it welcomes articles in English of specialists in the field of condensed matter from around the world.
