Special Issue "Ionic Liquids and Deep Eutectic Solvents for Synthesis, Materials and Energy"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 January 2017)
As many of you are aware of, ionic liquids (ILs) and deep eutectic solvents (DES), as nonvolatile alternatives to conventional organic solvents, have gained tremendous attention over the past two decades in various aspects of chemical applications. In particular, these novel solvents have recently been found to be very valuable for many catalytic and biocatalytic reactions/processes with targeted applications for new materials (such as nanomaterials and biopolymers) and energy (such as cellulosic ethanol, biodiesel, dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) and batteries). This Special Issue will be a collection of high-calibre papers focusing on transition metal catalysis, organocatalysis and biotransformations involving ionic liquids and deep eutectic solvents, and preferably are associated with applications in materials and energy. We anticipate this Issue will be highly visible and attractive to the scientific community of synthesis, materials and energy. This Special Issue will entertain contributions covering all the aspects broadly indicated by the keywords. Reviews articles by experts of relevant subjects are highly welcomed.

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. Molecules 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.
