Special Issue "Fluorescence Spectroscopy of Biomolecules"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2021).
It is my great pleasure to invite you to submit an article for a high-profile Special Issue on the “Fluorescence Spectroscopy of Biomolecules” to be published in Molecules.
This Special Issue aims to highlight research on biomolecules using fluorescence spectroscopy in a very broad sense.
It concerns steady-state as well as time-resolved fluorescence studies, addressing the structural and dynamic properties of the excited biomolecules. Experimental and theoretical studies in solution and in the gas phase aiming at the characterization of the emitting excited state are welcome.
More specifically, it concerns the fluorescence of natural biomolecules, such as nucleic acids, enzymes and proteins, as well as flavins and haemoglobin, in a non-exhaustive list. It also deals with modified fluorescent nucleobases and amino acid analogues, aimed for use as biomarkers. In addition, it also treats studies of fluorescent ligands and drugs interacting with natural biomolecules. In this sense, it addresses fundamental processes such as energy and charge transfer phenomena.
Review articles and perspectives from experts in the field are also welcome.
Dr. Thomas Gustavsson
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.
