Our understanding of events at the nanoscale has led to major breakthroughs in science and continues to be a topical area of research. The convergent approach in this field has removed traditional boundaries of different areas and has brought scientists together in the common cause of designing novel materials for a diverse range of applications. Its exemplary depiction is in the publications in the Nanochemistry section of Molecules. Nanochemistry has seen tremendous growth over the short span of its existence in Molecules. I believe that it will continue to reach new heights, thanks mainly to the excellent research contributions made by the scientific community.
In order to bring the significance of Nanochemistry more into focus, we would like to put together a Special Issue which will clearly demonstrate the cross-disciplinary nature of this field, but will also encourage both young and established minds to engage in a thought-provoking process of leaping into the future by developing our understanding of structure–property relationships. We are inviting our colleagues to make contributions to this Special Issue in the form of research articles or review articles signifying the importance and identifying key issues remaining to be resolved.Prof. Dr. Ashok Kakkar
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.
