Special Issue "Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons: Synthesis, Characterisation and Application"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 January 2019
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are organic molecules featuring a bidimensional backbone composed of sp2-C atoms. This particular chemical structure confers to PAHs unique properties in term of reactivity, optical/redox properties, self-assembly and (opto)-electronic device performances. Furthermore, with the rise of graphene-based materials, PAHs appear as key building-blocks for the “total synthesis” of monodispersed nanographenes.
The continuous development of PAHs results in the synergy of advanced organic synthesis, spectroscopy, theoretical chemistry, supramolecular chemistry and electronic engineering. The present special issue “Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons: Synthesis, Characterizations and Applications” aims at covering all these aspects linked to these fascinating molecules.

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.
