The interest in ionic liquids for pharmaceutical applications has been growing over time. Due to their tunable Physico-chemical and biological properties, they can be explored as reaction media for the synthetic routes of both known and novel drugs, as part of distinct drug delivery systems for drugs with reduced bioavailability, and as biological active compounds explored to form active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). Additionally, to promote the acceptance of these compounds by the pharmaceutical industry, some aspects such as pharmaceutical efficiency, human toxicity, environmental impact and biodegradability must be explored. Thus, papers providing this kind of information are welcomed to the Special Issue “Advances in Ionic Liquids and Their Pharmaceutical Applications”. It is intended that they contribute to the improvement of the acknowledgment of the use of ionic liquids in pharmaceutical applications and open interesting perspectives regarding the future utilization of these compounds and their role in the new therapeutic options.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
