Special Issue "Intramolecular Hydrogen Bonding 2017"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 February 2017).
Interests: Noncovalent bonds with particular emphasis on H-bonds and proton transfers occurring within them, halogen, chalcogen, pnicogen, and tetrel bonds. The applications of these bonds to biochemical structure and function is of special interest.

Special Issue in Molecules: Spectroscopic Aspects of Noncovalent Interactions
The study of H-bonds goes back many years, and much is known about this phenomenon. However, the bulk of experimental and theoretical work has addressed H-bonds between separate molecules. When the H-bond is intramolecular, occurring within the context of a single molecule, it becomes much more difficult to extract even some of the fundamental properties, and, indeed, to even be sure if such a H-bond is actually present. This Special Issue will focus on intramolecular H-bonds; what is known about them, both experimentally and theoretically, and how such bonds can be identified and analyzed.

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.
