Chemical Communications, known as ChemComm, is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). It contains communications (short descriptions of new work requiring rapid publication) of significant work from across the chemical sciences. It also includes feature articles. From January 2012, ChemComm publishes 100 issues per year.

The editor of ChemComm is Robert D. Eagling and the Editorial Board Chair is Richard R. Schrock.

Chemical biology is an expanding area of the chemical sciences, and chemical biology papers are an important part of the content of ChemComm. ChemComm has been selected by the US National Library of Medicine for inclusion in MEDLINE, thereby increasing its visibility to the biological community.
