Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to submit an article to the upcoming Special Issue of Molecules on the theme of “Recent Progress of Organic Photochemistry”.

Organic photochemistry is a broad and interdisciplinary topic, covering the fields of chemical physics, molecular spectroscopy, physical organic chemistry, synthetic organic chemistry, computational organic chemistry, and supramolecular organic chemistry. Different domains of photochemistry and photophysics are receiving more attention and support from both governmental and industrial contractors and offer the potential to master the key technologies for the development and production of new materials and to generate new environmentally friendly processes. Photochemistry comprises a variety of domains in which compounds are used for their properties (e.g., fluorescence, phosphorescence, photochromism, energy transfer) or for their photochemical reactivity (e.g., hemolysis, heterolysis, electron transfer) in the preparation of chemical compounds, materials and products. The same techniques can be used to degrade organic compounds. Highly developed spectroscopic methods, including time-resolved spectroscopy, allow scientists in the field of photochemistry to describe photophysical process in full detail and also to predict photochemical reactivity by the application of theoretical methods.

This Special Issue of Molecules is focused on recent progress in organic photochemistry. Contributions that describe any molecular aspects of organic photochemistry are welcome, including the design of photochemical reactions and the development of methodology. Manuscripts describing original research, perspectives, reviews will be considered for publication in this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
