Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ionic liquids (ILs) are at the forefront of modern materials research and development, and virtually every field of application has at least seen attempts of using ILs for advanced materials design. Although not all attempts have been equally successful, ILs are among the most versatile and promising materials or material components in today's advanced materials. Fields of interest encompass energy, health, catalysis, environment, and many other areas. The Special Issue aims at highlighting recent key developments of the field and invites high profile contributions from all areas related to ionic liquids for advanced materials design and application.

This Special Issue is cooperating with the international conference ILMAT IV (https://www.ilmat.net/). All speakers presenting a paper at this conference can submit a manuscript for publication.

Manuscript Submission Information

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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
