The modern world of chemistry is vast and its connection to art strong. From nanocars and extraterrestrial materials to DNA origami and biofuels, chemistry, like art, expresses its transformative, material essence.  Chemistry’s unique connection to art – a science simultaneously steeped in abstraction and application, process and product – is the focus of this special section. We especially seek submissions related to topics on the cutting edge of chemistry, including nanoscience, synthetic biology, fuel cells, and neurochemistry.

We encourage artists, scientists, engineers, and scholars exploring the connection between chemistry and art to submit artwork with artist’s statement or manuscripts to the Leonardo editorial office:
