Special Issue "Photoactive Molecules"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 August 2016)
Prof. Scott Reed
Prof. Dr. Marino Resendiz
This special issue of Molecules is focused on studies of photoactive molecules. Contributions that describe any molecular aspects of photochemistry are welcome. We are interested in topics that span organic synthesis, inorganic chemistry, materials science, nanoscale phenomena, and photophysical chemistry. We are interested in articles describing new strategies for the synthesis and assembly of molecules, as well as the use of light to modify surfaces, to effect transformations, and the use of photoactive molecules in sensors and for light harvesting. We encourage authors to submit research papers and comprehensive reviews for this Special Issue. We hope that the submissions will reflect the diverse nature of this field.

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.
