The search for new environmentally benign non-aqueous solvents, which can easily be recovered/recycled, as well as acting as efficient catalysts, is a priority for the development of green/sustainable chemical processes. Ionic liquids (ILs) are now widely recognized as suitable for use in organic reactions and provide possibilities for improvement in the control of product distribution, enhanced reactivity, ease of product recovery, catalyst immobilization, and recycling. In this decade, ILs have been attracting many chemists’ research interest and numerous reports have already appeared in the literature. The chemistry of ILs is, however, still at an incredibly exciting stage in its development. This volume will discuss the scope of the applications of ionic liquids cutting edge reports on a wide range of scientific fields, e.g., organic chemistry, biotechnology, nuclear, materials, medicine, pharmaceutical and environmental, etc.
This issue is cooperating with the international conference ILMAT 2013 (http://ilmat2013.icgm.fr/). All speakers presenting a paper at this conference can submit a manuscript for publication.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
