The ideal solvent should address a number of requirements, including suitable physical and chemical properties, health safety, and a low environmental impact addressing regulatory concerns. Moreover, since 2007, solvents have been regulated at the European level under the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals regulation, known as REACH. In addition to intrinsic green properties and production from renewable resources, solvents sustainability also requires recovery procedures and reuse. Industry and academia have shifted their focus towards developing new bio-based solvents that are environmentally-friendly, as well as several combination on natural deep eutectic solvents. In the quest to achieve sustainability, leading solvent manufacturers have been collaborating with biotechnology firms to manufacture such greener solvents. This Special Issue is aimed at reporting recent advances in the field, and the new routes for green solvents toward industrial applications, highlighting, whenever possible, comparative aspects with classic organic solvents.

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.
