The journal deals with theoretical and experimental research on the following themes:
elementary processes (energy and charge transfer and chemical reactions); the effect of electron structure and physical properties of molecular systems on their reactivity;
mechanism of influence of external fields and ambient medium on chemical conversion, molecular dynamics and molecular organization;
dynamics and kinetics of photoinduced processes (photochemical reactions, energy transfer, charge phototransfer, luminescence, photodesorption and photodestruction);
mechanism of chemical reactions in gases, condensed phase, and on interfaces;
chain and heat processes in the conditions of ignition, burning and detonation in gases, in two-phase and condensed systems, nonequilibrium processes in bow shock waves.
