In light of the current outbreak of a novel coronavirus (2019–nCoV), ChemRxiv would like to share this collection of preprints* on COVID-19. Chemistry has a key role to play in understanding everything from viral structure to pathogenesis, isolation of vaccines and therapies, as well as in the development of materials and techniques used by basic researchers, virologists, and clinicians.

ChemRxiv is openly accessible, with no subscription fees for readers and no submission charges for authors. We encourage you to read and share this collection with colleagues and also invite you to share your research with a global community of scientists by posting your COVID-19 research on ChemRxiv.
