Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Sample preparation has been the focus of continuous research over the last two decades. Microextraction techniques, originated in this evolution, are powerful tools for analysists and they are applied, not only in research laboratories, but also in routine ones. Microextraction techniques, among other characteristics, are based on the reduction of the amount/volume of the extractant phases. In this scenario, the efficiency and selectivity of the applied materials are key. Additionally, the environmental and safety connotations of the novel extractant phases are deeply considered in the new developments.

The present Special Issue is focused on new materials, including sorbents and solvents, in microextraction techniques. The description of novel sorptive materials is warmly encouraged. In addition, the application of novel, but already proposed, materials (e.g., nanoparticles, composites, ionic liquids or switchable solvents) is welcome if they are applied for the resolution of new/important analytical problems in different fields.

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 monthly 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.
