In the field of pure chemistry, there are also many optional journals. Not to mention the major comprehensive journals such as N, S, NC, SA, PNAS, NSR, SB, and the major sub-journal NC. Other comprehensive chemistry journals include JACS, chem, angew, ACS CS, and CS, with around 10 journals. There are also strong journals like SCC and CCS chemistry in the first quartile. After that, there are CC and C-EJ. Moreover, pure chemistry also has top journals in their respective fields, such as Organic Letters (OL) and Organic Chemistry Frontiers (OCF) in organic chemistry, Analytical Chemistry (AC) and ACS Sensors (ACS sens) in analytical chemistry, Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters (JPCL) and Journal of Colloid and Interface Science (JCIS) in physical chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry (IC) and Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers (ICF) in inorganic chemistry, Macromolecules and ACS Macro Letters (ACS ML) in polymer chemistry, and many more in the field of catalysis like Nature Catalysis (N cata), ACS Catalysis (ACB), ACS Catalysis (ACS cata), and Journal of Catalysis (JC), all of which are very strong journals. In fact, everyone knows where CC stands in their hearts...

As of now, the current impact factor of CC is 5.98. It is almost certain that CC is unlikely to return to the top tier of chemistry journals because it has not shown much growth. Comparing it to other journals in the same chemistry category with similar impact factors, chemsuschem has 8.23, science china chemistry has 7.2, AC has 6.817, ACS macro letters has 6.74, the RSC's inorganic chemistry frontiers has an impact factor of 6.36, and the sub-journal communications chemistry, which is similar to CC in name, has an impact factor of 6.27. The journal of energy chemistry, which is also classified in the chemistry category, has an impact factor of 9.38. Currently, CC's development is not going well, and in a few years, these journals will likely pull away in terms of impact factor. Additionally, CC is not a domestic journal, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences is unlikely to prioritize it like they did with organic chemistry frontiers, which entered the top 5% of chemistry journals and reached the top tier. Therefore, personally, I believe CC is not suitable for investment.
