Carbocations are well-known intermediates in organic chemistry and have been extensively studied experimentally over the past 60 years, mainly in solutions of liquid superacids by NMR. Recently, pure salts of saturated and unsaturated carbocations (with double and triple CC bonds) with carborane counterions have been isolated for the first time, which made it possible to establish their X-ray structure and obtain stable solutions of their salts in ordinary organochlorine solvents at room temperature. This made it possible to start studying their interaction with neutral weakly basic molecules. Thus, new possibilities have opened up for studying the properties and reactivity of carbocations through various physical methods, which had not been possible before. In this Special Issue, we invite contributions in the form of original research articles and reviews on all aspects related to carbocations.

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.
