Special Issue "Solution Chemical Kinetics 2019"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2020).
Interests: chemical kinetics; solvolysis; LFERs (Linear Free Energy Relationships); QSARs (Quantitative Structure Activity Relationships); database user-needs analysis (database building)
In solutions, there are enormous numbers of solvent molecules that are in constant kinetic interaction with other solute reactants and amongst themselves. The quantitative study of these coupled collisions as a function of time, the stoichiometry of such chemical encounters, and any resultant changes in energy or in covalent and noncovalent chemical structures is relevant, complex, and interesting to chemical, biological, and environmental systems. This IJMS Special Issue is dedicated to papers that examine the significance and enhance our basic understanding of chemical reaction kinetics, molecular reaction dynamics, and reaction mechanisms that occur in solutions.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
