Special Issue "Halogen Bonds and Beyond"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 November 2017)
The field of weak interactions has witnesses a great deal of progress in recent years. New types of interactions have been described and their natures have been rationalized. Even though the most important non-covalent interaction is the hydrogen bond, the halogen bond has been recognized as the second most important interaction. Its relevance as a tool in molecular recognition has been used in different areas, such as catalysis, material science and medicinal chemistry. This Special Issue aims to show the different facets of halogen bonds. It welcomes original research papers and reviews dealing with experimental, computational studies and statistical surveys were halogen bonds are involved.

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.
