Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) and imaging (MRI) are among the most powerful analytical tools used to study chemical and biochemical transformations. However, one of the main drawbacks of NMR and MRI is their low sensitivity. Hyperpolarization techniques allow enhancing the NMR signals of various molecules by several orders of magnitude, making possible applications that were previously inaccessible, i.e., monitoring metabolism of small molecules in vivo.

Researchers working in the field of hyperpolarized NMR/MRI are invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Molecules, which will report on the chemistry and physics of hyperpolarization formation, improvements in the detection of hyperpolarized molecules, and applications of hyperpolarized NMR/MRI approaches in chemistry and biomedicine.

Discount Information:

We welcome you to submit abstracts first before 31 July 2019. We will provide different discounts to papers according to the abstract. Our Guest Editor will evaluate all qualified abstracts to be solicited. The following discounts will be awarded: two 50% discounts, three 30% discounts, and five 20% discounts.

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.
