Special Issue "High Pressure Synthesis in Crystalline Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 August 2019).
Pressure is a principal thermodynamic parameter able to control the state, structure, physical properties and chemical behavior of matter. One of most unique properties of high pressure is the ability to change the pathways of chemical reactions and enable the synthesis of materials that cannot be obtained under ambient pressure conditions. New chemical compounds with unusual and unexpected stoichiometries, new types of bonding, and properties that may be of significant future technological applications have been synthesized in high-pressure experiments. This Special Issue will focus on reports of such results, from experiments, as well as based on computational predictions. Our understanding of the exact mechanisms of high-pressure solid state reactions and the factors controlling their progress and direction is still very preliminary, and improving this knowledge is key to harnessing the power of high pressure for practical applications.

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 1400 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.
