Special Issue "Supramolecular Interactions"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2015)

Interests: supramolecular chemistry; polymers; stimuli-responsive materials; biomaterials; drug delivery; tissue engineering
Nature employs a combination of supramolecular interactions (e.g., electrostatic, hydrophobic, π-π, cation/anion-π, van der Waals forces, hydrogen-bonding and metal coordination) to generate hierarchically ordered structures with remarkable stimuli-responsive properties. The same structure-directing forces can, in principle, be employed for the realization of man-made assemblies with similar or perhaps even greater utility. In this Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences devoted to "Supramolecular Interactions", we warmly invite submissions related to the synthesis, characterization and technical/biomedical applications of supramolecular entities.

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.
