Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As in the case of other “frontier” areas of knowledge, thermodynamics stands out, alongside other sciences, in taking on new challenges in solving problems, and ultimately in the transfer of knowledge. However, for this purpose, it is necessary to identify the fields of interest in which there are demands and to close the communication gaps that currently exist between experimental and theoretical researchers—a mission that is difficult but not impossible.

In recent decades, the incorporation of the molecular point of view of matter—combining laws of classical and statistical thermodynamics with chemical–physical models of the structure of matter and intermolecular forces—has allowed the development of procedures that are very useful to solve a wide variety of problems in fields as diverse as those of chemistry, chemical engineering, materials, energy, and food or health sciences. New possibilities have also arisen due to the increase in computing power and the development of software whose handling is, in many cases, quite affordable.

This Special Issue presents an invitation to researchers in molecular thermodynamics and other related fields to contribute their works; this aims to gather and promote research lines and build bridges between the basic aspects of science and the new developments in technological processes and materials.

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.
