Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will be dedicated to the basics of thin film manufacturing including modelling of coating growth or reactions taking place during the formation of the layer. In addition, contributions around deposition, creation, and incorporation of nanoparticles and related films for functional and tribological applications are particularly welcome. This Special Issue is open to both vacuum and non-vacuum coating manufacturing techniques including PVD, CVD, ALD, sol-gel, thermal spray, and electroplating.

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.
