Special Issue "Advanced Chemistry of Energetic Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 29 February 2020.
Over the past 30 years, there has been an unprecedented increase of information from chemistry and less so from technology of energetic materials (EMs) in the open literature. However, a large amount of that information here has turned labyrinthine in its form, and the presence of a bigger amount of quantum-chemical studies is leading to a certain “diluting” of the chemical information available. Therefore, it would be useful to draw attention to the methods and findings of major importance for further research and development in this field, even for the mentioned quantum-chemical approaches, which often lack links to real practice, especially with EM testing. Of course, the publication of technological information is bound up with production and other secrets, but it is still possible to find papers pointing to developments in this field—for example, new approaches to prepare of CL-20, HMX, FOX-7, TKX-50, BCHMX and other technically attractive EMs. Crystal engineering, that is to say, the theory, methods, and technologies of co-crystals preparation, which is one of the major and promising sectors of contemporary development of explosives, has experienceed a significant upswing in attempts to use it, as chemical methods have almost reached their maximum usable potential. For this reason, a similar interest also exists in the development of nano-EMs and mixtures containing them, but also mixed explosives of the PBXs type with new binders and plasticizers, in new propellants and, last but not least, in industrial explosives type W/O and others.

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 1800 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.
