Special Issue "Experimental and Theoretical Electron-Density Study of Crystalline Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 June 2020).
Interests: electron-density analysis; experiment vs. theory; X-ray single-crystal diffraction; X-ray wavefunction refinement; chemical bonding; hydrogen bonding
It is a great honour to introduce the new Special Issue “Experimental and Theoretical Electron-Density Study of Crystalline Materials”. Electron density studies are still a challenging task, although the method of charge density determination has been known since 1960. Ideas for publications in this Special Issue may come from a variety of both experimental and/or theoretical of sources. We expect studies from many point of view and interest, from the electronic nature of chemical systems through chemical bonding analysis to hydrogen-bonding investigations. Any recent developments or innovations on methodological aspects are welcome, especially new ideas and solutions coming from X-ray wavefunction refinement, as one of the newest methods to obtain so-called experimental wave function. All topics, whether mentioned above or not, closely related to electron density studies of crystalline materials will be carefully considered.
We stress that the call for papers on “Experimental and Theoretical Electron-Density Study of Crystalline Materials” is open to everyone, so please make your colleagues aware of the forthcoming Special Issue. This is a great opportunity to show your outstanding results to a wider spectrum of readers using the open access form of the Crystals journal.

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.
