Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the past few decades, supramolecular chemistry has yielded fascinating and unprecedented structures. Recent years have seen major breakthroughs at the interface of supramolecular chemistry and biological sciences. Novel biomimetic and bioinspired nanoarchitectures that incorporate biomolecules have been generated by programmed or templated self-assembly processes using supramolecular interactions or dynamic covalent reactions. Application studies in biorecognition, DNA/RNA recognition, biosensing, enzyme inhibition, and drug/gene/protein delivery have then revealed the unique and attractive behaviors of such dynamic and adaptive self-assemblies. This Special Issue of Molecules will be devoted to showcasing these tremendous progresses that push the boundary of the bio-supramolecular interface and open new and exciting avenues for the design, production, and application of biomolecular self-assemblies.

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.
