Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Porous materials distribute widely and act as very important roles in each field. Especially, porous materials have various characteristics depending on pore size, surface property of the pore wall, pore array and local structure of the pore wall, and can be used as adsorbents, separators, thermal insulators, acoustic absorbents, photonics, their electric properties, and so on. Accordingly, papers on porous materials are dispersed in many fields, and, unfortunately, many common hints for synthesis and the characteristics of porous materials are scattered.  Therefore, this Special Issue invites the submission of works related to porous materials and their applications in many fields. To prepare appropriate porous materials for each purpose, the Special Issue may be very useful for the readers. For the authors, the issue will be a good opportunity for publication after peer review by expert researchers of porous materials. Review articles by experts in the field will also be welcome.

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.
