Special Issue "New Studies of Conjugated Compounds"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 May 2020.
Conjugated organic molecules are important molecular building blocks in advanced nanoscale materials and devices. Their application can be widely found in single-molecule devices (e.g., chemo-/biosensors, light-emitters, molecular switches, molecular machines), as well as in much larger macromolecular and supramolecular systems (molecular wires, 2D and 3D conjugated polymers, molecular frameworks, etc.). This Special Issue aims to highlight recent new research directions in this field. The scope of papers encompasses innovative molecular design and synthesis, advanced characterizations, theoretical modeling, and applications in electronic, optical, magnetic, biolabeling, and bioimaging materials and devices.
Communications, full papers, and reviews on the abovementioned topics are particularly 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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
