Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cyclodextrins (CDs) are cyclic, water-soluble oligosaccharides composed of six (α-CD), seven (β-CD), or eight (γ-CD) D(+)-glucose units linked by α-1,4 bonds. Obtained from the starch, CDs are considered natural molecules. Their typical toroidal-like structure  consists in an apolar internal cavity and a polar external surface allowing physically inclusions of a wide range of active molecules especially with aromatic rings. Thanks to their characteristics, CDs have numerous applications in several fields: biotechnologies, green chemistry, cosmetic formulations/fragrance stabilization, analytical chemistry, drug delivery, pharmaceutical excipients. In fact, nowadays, there are already numerous food products, pharmaceutical formulations on the market containing natural CDs. To further increase the benefits of these molecules, they can undergo chemical modifications producing synthetic CDs derivatives. This Special Issue aims to implement the information regarding the use of cyclodextrins and their molecular complexes to evaluate their potential role in multiple applications.

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.
