Special Issue "High Temperature Statistical Thermodynamics of Molecules in Gases and Plasmas"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2021) | Viewed by 4976
The present Issue is devoted to fundamentals of high temperature statistical thermodynamics of small molecules and applications of partition functions and thermodynamic properties. High temperatures are understood broadly ranging from 1000K to tens of thousands of Kelvins.
Applications of high temperature statistical thermodynamics are scattered over several areas of research – the general chemical physics/physical chemistry, combustion (temperatures of thousands of Kelvins are of interest), plasma science (whole range of temperatures mentioned above can be of interest), hypersonic flows (also shock waves and aerothermodynamics; temperatures of tens of thousands of Kelvins are often of interest) and equations of state.
In plasmas and flows the non-equilibrium conditions often arise and translations, rotations and vibrations of molecules are characterized by different temperatures. The kinetic theory is then needed to connect external conditions with thermodynamical quantities.
The main scope is theoretical studies of various gas and plasma systems but experimental studies are also welcomed.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Entropy 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 2600 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.
