Special Issue "Noncovalent Interactions and Supramolecular Complex Formation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 August 2019
Dr. Jennifer R Hiscock
This Special Issue is related to the Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry Meeting (MASC19). This conference is to be held at the University of Kent (UK) on the 16th–17th December, 2019.
The Best Special Issue Paper Award (400 CHF, a certificate, and a chance to participate in the conference) will be selected from this Special Issue by an evaluation panel consisting of the Guest Editor and members from the Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry Meeting (2019) organising committee.
Since supramolecular chemistry was first established in the 1980s, there is no doubt growth within this area of science has led to ground-breaking advances for those interdisciplinary fields, which contribute but are not limited to the development of: Molecular sensors; materials; catalysts; bio-inspired synthetic systems; and novel drug delivery technologies. In more recent times, supramolecular chemistry has made a step-change from fundamental science to producing commercial products readily used in everyday life. However, it remains without question that these real-life applications of supramolecular chemistry have been achieved and will continue to be made possible through the investigation, understanding, and use of noncovalent bond formation at a fundamental level.
All researchers working directly within, or in areas related to, the field of Supramolecular Chemistry, are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Molecules. The aim of this Special Issue is to celebrate and further highlight the importance of novel fundamental and applied studies which focus around the formation of noncovalent interactions.

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.
