It is our pleasure to announce the next Applied Sciences Special Issue entitled “Applications of Deep Eutectic Solvents in Analytical Chemistry”, which will compile the most relevant applications of deep eutectic solvents (DES) in the field of analytical chemistry.
The current trends in analytical chemistry advocate the development of sustainable methodologies which have a minimal impact on environment and reduce or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances. In fact, the application of low-toxicity or nontoxic solvents such as DES and, most recently, natural DES (NADES) has become one of the most important actions. This new generation of green materials is constituted by at least two components, a hydrogen bond donor (HBD) and a hydrogen bond acceptor (HBA) that, when combined, produce a new substance with higher volatility than that of the initial reagents. DES and NADES presents variable and unique properties that make them excellent materials to be applied in many fields, including analytical chemistry. They have been used not only as solvents in sample preparation, but also as stationary phases and sensors components or as additives in mobile phases.
The aim of this publication is to present the most recent applications of DES and NADES in the area of analytical chemistry, as well as provide a wide and accurate overview of the recent advances and future trends in the field.
This Special Issue is supported by the Sample Preparation Study Group and Network, supported by the Division of Analytical Chemistry of the European Chemical Society.

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. Applied Sciences 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.
