Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Innovative analytical instrument configurations are needed to fully characterize xenobiotics and biologically active principles. Analytical procedures today allow us to obtain a much closer accuracy (precision and trueness) and, consequently, correct information about these compounds, the composition of a complex sample, the physicochemical properties, etc. In recent years, new systems have been developed and applied in several fields, such as environmental, biological, forensic, pharmaceutical, and alimentary, which allow scientists to acquire relevant information even when complex matrices are analyzed.
This Special Issue will highlight and describe the latest improvements in instrument configurations, techniques developed, and particularly, innovative statistical approaches applied to analyze the data.
Greater attention will be given to recent developments in sample preparation and extraction techniques, modern detection techniques, and statistical approaches (for both data elaboration and the planning and design of experiments), all with the main target to improve the sensitivity and the selectivity of the proposed method, eliminate false information, search for outliers, etc.

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.
