Springer Briefs in Molecular Science: History of Chemistry presents concise summaries of historical topics covering all aspects of chemistry, alchemy, and chemical technology.

Featuring compact volumes of 50 to 125 pages, SpringerBriefs in History of Chemistry acts as a venue between articles published in the historical journals and full historical monographs or books.
Typical topics might include:
- An overview or review of an important historical topic of broad interest
