Photochemistry is a crucial discipline in the frontier between physics and chemistry. Light–matter interaction remained underexplained when this topic first emerged. Physical principles of quantum chemistry and engineering advances on lamp sources underwent fast development during the second half of the 20th century, leading to modern photochemistry as it is known today.
In addition, computational methods have gained a lot of interest from the photochemical community as they allow for the study of light–matter interaction. Today, the synergy between computational and experimental studies offers a valuable and comprehensive explanation of the systems under study due to the combined capacity to predict, simulate, and explain photophysical and photochemical properties and processes. This combination of experimental and computational data provides a deeper understanding of many different phenomena.
This Special Issue aims to cover general aspects of photochemistry, particularly regarding the interplay between computational and experimental chemistry. Contributions dealing with experimental, computational, or hybrid approaches are welcome. Synthesis, computational studies, spectroscopic techniques, and combined approaches will be considered.

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.
