Supramolecular systems are molecular and/or materials systems held together by noncovalent interactions and which perform a function. Examples are (fluorescent, electrochemical, or ...) sensors created by the self-assembly of receptor units, self-assembled drug carriers, or membranes made by layer-by-layer assembly. In this special issue, we invite in particular those contributions that combine supramolecular self-assembly with a function, possibly implemented in an application or device.

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.
