Special Issue "Ionic Liquids, from Their Synthesis to Their Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019.
PCM2E Laboratory, Tours University, Tours, France
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an original and unique environment for researchers in academia and industry to share and discuss their cutting-edge results on the synthesis and physical and applied chemistry of novel ionic liquids, covering their synthesis, characterization, modelling, and/or applications.
This class of materials possess unique properties that are useful for a wide range of applications in fields as diverse as petrochemicals, energy storage, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, hydrometallurgy, environmental remediation, and nuclear sciences. In all these fields, ionic liquids can provide novel research strategy and technologies that enable major contributions towards establishing the sustainable processes required for the future process industry.
- Application of ionic liquids for the following:
a. Analytical separations;
f. Membrane separations;
h. Novel separation processes;
i. Energy storage (supercapacitor, metal-ion batteries, etc.).
- Application of ionic liquids in the following:
b. Biotechnology and biorefining;
c. Chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and/or petrochemicals;
d. Gas capture and utilization;
e. Environmental remediation;
g. Surface cleaning;
h. Waste treatment.
- Process modeling and fundamental studies:
a. Equations of state;
b. Molecular modeling and simulation;
c. Electronic structure calculations;
d. Process simulation;
e. Group contribution modeling;
f. QSPR/QSAR modeling.

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.
