Special Issue "Noncovalent Interactions and Applications in Materials and Catalysis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2024 | Viewed by 557
Noncovalent interactions exist in all molecular systems from the environment to living organisms; they exist in supramolecular structures, in crystals, and in liquid phase and play an important role in materials and in catalysis. The role of hydrogen bonds and aromatic interactions in living organisms was recognized a long time ago. Many properties of molecular systems are affected by noncovalent interactions. Noncovalent interactions are often observed and studied in crystal structures or using spectroscopic methods, and also using computational methods such as quantum chemistry and force field calculations.
This Special Issue aims to address the latest research on noncovalent interactions and applications in materials and in catalysis. Noncovalent interactions determine the properties of the materials, while in catalysis noncovalent interactions play an important role in influencing the activation barrier and selectivity of a catalyst. The studies in which noncovalent interactions are observed and characterized as well as studies demonstrating the role of noncovalent interactions in materials and catalysis are welcome.

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.
