Energy is one of main key drivers for our society; however, many energy generation technologies can be deleterious to our environment. There is a huge surge in attempts to find new materials to meet the global challenges of energy and climate. New materials can provide the necessary technology for renewable energy sources, energy storage, efficient energy use, techniques for carbon capture and storage, climate engineering, as well as an appreciation of the impact of these on the environment. Experimental research with advanced characterisation techniques is providing new ways to study energy materials with unprecedented resolution and precision, while the rational design of materials is still at the core of new technology development for energy-efficient and environmentally friendly materials. Molecular modelling and simulation techniques can provide the necessary link to bridge the gap between microscopic structures and macroscopic properties, which is of fundamental importance to design novel energy and environmental materials.
We invite submissions of original research and review articles on the application and development of new materials, molecule-material assemblies for energy and environmental applications. Submissions should include significant new findings related to computational modelling (DFT, TD-DFT, DFT-MD, force field calculations) insights, rational designing of new materials, experimental synthesis, characterisation and fabrication, structure–property relationship towards performance, and technological application in following areas but not limited to:

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 2300 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.
