Owing to their nanoscopic-like dimensions, solids whose unit cells lie in the range (10‒9–10‒6)m can exhibit strikingly different properties when compared to their classical macroscopic analogues; systems such as H2O ices and clathrate hydrates, carbon nanotubes, metal-organic frameworks, disordered carbon lattices and others, are paradigms of such materials.
This special issue of IJMS focus on understanding and rationalizing, from within a molecular perspective, the influence played by nanoscopic solids upon the thermodynamic properties, ranging from a molecular and mesoscale level up to a process-like scale, spanning across multiple nanomaterials and applications. Contributions from experimental, simulation and theoretical backgrounds, and also a combination of them are welcomed.
We invite the submission of papers in the form of reviews, original research articles and short communications, whilst focusing on the molecular-level understanding of nanostructured materials and/or their interactions with other substances.
With this special issue we hope to provide an overview of recent advances on the molecular thermodynamics of nanostructured materials, providing an up-to-date roadmap able to cater for the journal’s broad readership.

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.
