This Special Issue highlights recent developments in the field of Raman and infrared spectroscopy for applications in life science and analytical chemistry. Vibrational spectroscopy offers an extremely high chemical selectivity with no need for labeling or extensive sample preparation. Recent developments towards signal enhancement, miniaturization and robustness pave the way for plenty new applications in various interdisciplinary topics. Exciting fields for in-line analysis, point-of-care and onsite application are biomedical diagnostic, environmental monitoring, process analysis, investigation of pharmaceuticals, food analysis, materials development and many others.
In order to give an update of recent progresses in technique improvements and new applications, you are kindly invited to submit your original articles or reviews of your work.

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.
