List of publications in chemistry

This is a list of important publications in chemistry, organized by field.

Some reasons why a particular publication might be regarded as important:

  • Topic creator - A publication that created a new topic
  • Breakthrough - A publication that changed scientific knowledge significantly
  • Introduction - A publication that is a good introduction or survey of a topic
  • Impact - A publication which had a major impact on the world or on the research
  • Latest and greatest - The current most advanced result in a topic


The Dependence Between the Properties of the Atomic Weights of the Elements

Description: In this paper the Periodic Table was introduced. Notice that the table in the above link is the original one. Since then the table structure was slightly changed and new elements were added to it.

Importance: Topic creator, Breakthrough, Impact

A Structure for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid

Description: In this paper the structure of DNA was proposed. It consisted of a double helix with a phosphate backbone, unlike Linus Pauling and R.B. Corey's double helix where the backbone consisted of the bases. They conclue with the sly remark: "It has not escaped our notice that the specific pairing we have postulated immediately suggests a possible copying mechanism for the genetic material."
