Special Issue "Molecular Modeling in Crystals"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2021).
Crystallization processes have long been a particular concern of research and industrial applications, e.g., in the production of drugs. Even though there have been many model approaches and helpful theoretical concepts for understanding crystallization processes in this field, many questions still remain unanswered today, for example: How can crystal forms be controlled by additives, by the composition of the solvents, or by physical action? Which molecular processes influence biomineralization? This Special Issue will focus on models that address the role and structure of individual molecules that capture small length and time scales but have a decisive influence on the macroscales of crystallization. We invite researchers to contribute to this Special Issue on Molecular Modeling which is intended to serve as a unique multidisciplinary forum covering broad aspects of science, technology, and application. We especially welcome contributions in which scientists from different disciplines develop general or specific models for the understanding and/or possible control of complex crystallization processes.

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. Crystals 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.
