Special Issue "Experimental and Computational Photochemistry of Bioorganic Molecules"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 October 2016).
Interests: electronic and vibrational spectroscopy; femtochemistry and femtobiology; electronic and structural dynamics; bioorganic photochemistry; chemical kinetics; theoretical and computational chemistry
It is my great pleasure to invite you to submit an article for a high-profile Special Issue on “Experimental and Computational Photochemistry of Bioorganic Molecules” to be published in Molecules. This Special Issue aims to highlight research on light-induced processes in nucleic acids and amino acids, as well as their derivatives and analogues, in both the gas and condensed phases. This includes, but is not limited to, new experimental and theoretical methodologies in the electronic and structural dynamics of these biomolecules. Research articles focusing on electronic and vibrational relaxation mechanisms; excited-state charge, energy, hydrogen, or proton transfer phenomena; and elucidation of probable mechanisms of product formation or product repair are among topics that this Special Issue aims to address. Reviews articles and perspectives from experts in the field are also welcome.

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.
