Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ionic liquids are unique organic compounds, mainly because of their attractive properties, including e.g. low vapor pressure, high thermal and electrochemical stability, and high conductivity. They have been investigated in terms of a wide variety of applications, because salts of this type possess potentially useful characteristics, which are dependent on the identities and properties of both ionic constituents.

The focus of this Special Issue "Synthesis of Ionic Liquids" is to collect Short Notes or more extensive Communications describing new ionic liquids. We are especially looking for articles on novel synthetic approaches, significant process changes in already known ionic liquid synthesis procedures or new efficient purification procedures. Research articles should contain more than one of the following significant results: design and synthesis, spectroscopic and structural characterization by proton and carbon nuclear magnetic resonance (1H and 13C NMR), infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), ultraviolet and visible spectroscopy (UV-Vis), elemental analysis, physicochemical properties. Studies which demonstrate any application area of the prepared ionic liquids are more than welcome.

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. Molbank is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 500 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.
