Organic functional molecules play a core role in creating innovative properties for a variety of material systems and device applications because of their versatility and tuning potentials via chemical synthesis. In particular, advances in nanotechnology and photonics enable organic functional molecules to extend their roles toward a sophisticated nanoscale photonics (nanophotonics), which is a challenging category for increasing the current limitations of optoelectronic and photonic systems. In addition, organic nanophotonics are considered critical constituents in order to complete flexible electronics, which are a new paradigm in transition. This Special Issue aims to deliver an active forum for very recent advances in organic nanophotonics including novel organic photonic molecules, organic nanophotonic devices, nanophotonic systems with organic molecules, biomedical applications of organic nanophotonic devices, organic nanophotonic materials and devices for energy and environmental applications, etc.

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.
