Special Issue "Spectroscopic Aspects of Noncovalent Interactions"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2020).
Interests: Noncovalent bonds; H-bonds; Halogen bonds; Chalcogen bonds; Pnicogen bonds; Tetrel bonds; Computational chemistry
Interests: noncovalent bonds with particular emphasis on H-bonds and proton transfers occurring within them, halogen, chalcogen, pnicogen, and tetrel bonds. The applications of these bonds to biochemical structure and function is of special interest.

The replacement of the bridging H atom in H-bonds by a variety of other, more electronegative, atoms has led to a great deal of accumulating information concerning the related noncovalent bonds, generally known as halogen, chalcogen, pnicogen, and tetrel bonds. The newly acquired information from quantum chemical calculations has a natural overlap with experimental information in the area of spectral data. This Special Issue is dedicated to this overlap with the hope that computational and experimental studies can find a mutual synergy, act as a check on one another, and together provide profound insights into the fundamental nature of all of these 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 2000 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.
