Special Issue "Calixarenes and Resorcinarenes"
A special issue of Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2013).
Interests: calixarenes chemistry; methylene-bridge-substituted calixarenes; azide-terminated calixarenes; di- and tricalixarenes
Calixarenes and resorcinarenes are families of macrocyclic species that have become a broad field of chemical research over the past few decades. This area flourishes and is vibrant today as these molecules are studied in areas such as catalysis, molecular recognition, sensing, and devices. At the forefront, researchers around the world are developing yet more elaborate molecular and supramolecular chemistry of these versatile molecules and expanding their application into previously unexplored fields. With this special issue of Molecules, we seek previously unpublished manuscripts on the chemistry of calixarenes and resorcinarenes, including their synthesis, structure, properties, and applications.

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.
