Special Issue "Study on Synthesis and Photochemistry of Dyes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2024 | Viewed by 666
Dyes are widely used in the textile, pharmaceutical, food, cosmetics, plastics, paint, ink, photographic and paper industries. Moreover, the traditional dyes have been developed into functional dyes, which can be further used in semiconductors, photosensitizers, emitters in optoelectronics devices, optical and luminescent sensors for biological and environmental monitoring systems, and therapeutic agents for medical purposes, and so on.
Dye’s characteristics are closely related to their photochemical properties, which has been investigated thoroughly. For example, dyes with photon absorption/emission at distinct wavelengths can be used as the industrial colorants or potential optical signal indicators in chemosensors; dyes with white-light emission are used in solid-state lighting, flat-panel display devices, and backlights for liquid crystalline display; dyes with the ability to produce singlet oxygen under light irradiation can be used for photodynamic therapy (PDT); dyes are used as the photosensitizers in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) for their abilities of photoexcitation and electron injection. On the other hand, dye properties are further optimized through the modification of molecular structures, which is promoted by the organic synthesis.
This Special Issue entitled “Study on Synthesis and Photochemistry of Dyes” welcomes manuscripts (original research papers, short communications, or focus reviews) pointed out by the keywords given below. However, other related topics are also 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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
