Special Issue "Chemical Bond and Bonding: Fundamental Aspects and Recent Developments"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2024 | Viewed by 431
Interests: molecular modeling with unusual bonding and reactivity; ligand supported transient species; catalysis; small molecule activation; hydrogen storage; conceptual density functional theory; noble gas compounds
Chemical bonds, as the result of interactions between different atoms, are integral to chemical substances, directly affecting their properties and manifestations in different environments. Chemical bonds are relevant to various disciplines and fields, such as chemistry, physics, quantum science, mathematics, biology, ecology, environmental protection, food, medicine and pharmaceuticals, etc., and play an important role in various biological processes. The structure and function of chemical molecules such as DNA and protein are related to chemical bonds. It goes without saying that they are of great significance to the development and progress of science and technology, as well as human life and health.
This Special Issue invites scientists from different experimental and theoretical fields to contribute their results. Contributions will include modern bonding concepts and some unconventional types of bonding introduced to describe new chemical species, providing a diversified view on chemical bonding and its related issues.

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.
