Special Issue "Molecular Chirality"
A special issue of Symmetry (ISSN 2073-8994).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2019).
Chiral molecules give rise to a multitude of interesting chemical and physical phenomena. These have been greatly investigated over the years, beginning with pioneering experimental and theoretical works associated with Arago, Biot, Fresnel and Pasteur, to early quantum mechanical studies by Hund and Rosenfeld. Molecular chirality is an area of research that continues to evolve and mature, yielding novel present-day processes and the prospect of future scientific and technological advances, which will in turn require an even deeper understanding of the fundamental issues at play. The aim of this Special Issue is to present recent experimental and theoretical research progress relating to molecular chirality and its multifarious manifestations, broadly interpreted.
Topics to be included are:
- Structural Chirality and Symmetry
- Optical Rotation and Circular Dichroism
- Light Scattering by Chiral Molecules
- Novel Linear and Nonlinear Chiroptical Spectroscopies
- (Chiral) Structured Light-Chiral Matter Interactions
- Chiral Discrimination and Enantiomeric Excess
- Resonant and Dispersive Interactions Between Chiral Molecules
- Laser-Induced Discriminatory Processes
- Manifestations of Chirality at Surfaces and Interfaces
- Chirality Measures
- Induced Chirality

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. Symmetry 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 1400 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.
