Special Issue Information
Thermal analysis and calorimetry are versatile techniques representing powerful tools to investigate processes and characterize solid and liquid substances along with complementary methods (i.e., X-ray diffraction, Scanning Electron Microscopy, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy, etc.).
Owing to the increasing spread of COVID-19 worldwide and to the severe restrictions imposed by the Italian as well as by other governments, the “XLII National Conference on Calorimetry, Thermal Analysis and Applied Thermodynamics” will be jointly organized by the Italian Association of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry (A.I.C.A.T.) and the Interdivisional Group of Calorimetry and Thermal Analysis (G. I.C.A.T.) of the Italian Chemical Society as a virtual event on January 27–28, 2021.
This conference has a long tradition in providing a unique stage to young and distinguished researchers coming from different regions of Italy and from countries abroad to present the most recent developments and share ideas on a plethora of topics in the fields of thermal analysis and calorimetry, ranging from food to biocalorimetry, lifetime prediction of materials, cultural heritage, life science, polymer science, and pharmaceuticals. The official language is English, while the scientific common background is classical and applied thermodynamics, as suggested by the title of the conference.
This Special Issue aims at collecting a valuable selection of contributions, favoring (but not limited to) those who provide significant insights into physico-chemical processes and a corresponding description of reaction mechanisms, the characterization of all kinds of phase transitions, innovative routes for thermal energy storage and energy conversion, and original approaches focused on applied thermodynamics with particular reference to the entropic contribution, following a classical and/or applied thermodynamic approach.

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 2000 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.
