Sub- and supercritical fluids have been employed in various green chemical processes, including chemical synthesis, chemical degradation, environmental remediation, cleaning, extraction, chromatography, and other processes. Since common sub- and supercritical fluids, such as supercritical carbon dioxide and subcritical water, are non-toxic and non-flammable, any processes involving these fluids are environment and operator friendly. In many cases, such green processes are also more economical because the waste generated by supercritical carbon dioxide and subcritical water normally does not require waste disposal, which can be very expensive.
The aim of this Special Issue is to focus on application of sub- and supercritical fluids in a wide range of chemical processes. The goal of this type of green chemistry is to eliminate or minimize the use of toxic organic solvents in synthesis, cleaning, extraction, chromatography, environmental remediation, and other chemical processes.

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.
