Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the field of chemistry, clarifying the 3D structure of compounds is as important as promoting science that utilizes this information, for example, proving that a compound has been synthesized correctly; determining the stereochemistry and isomers of a compound beyond the composition and atomic bonds obtained in identification analysis; elucidating the possibility of intermolecular interactions and supramolecular formation; and combining three-dimensional structures, such as docking with complex functional materials (porous materials and guest molecules) and nucleic acids and proteins (biomolecules and pharmaceuticals, etc.). This Special Issue covers all chemical fields (organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, solid-state chemistry, complex chemistry, biochemistry, etc.) related to the “use of crystallography in chemistry” based on crystal analysis, which is still the main method for determining three-dimensional structures.

We welcome papers and reviews on the following topics: the principles of and equipment used for crystal structure analysis (devices, quantum beams, crystallization and sample preparation), analysis programs, mathematical algorithms, compound structure reports, computational chemistry, data derived from crystal databases, etc.

Prof. Dr. Takashiro Akitsu
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2700 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.
