Special Issue Information

Advances in both experimental hardware and imaging methodologies have led to a rapid expansion of the use of in situ liquid stages for high-resolution (scanning) transmission electron microscopy observations of dynamic processes that are fundamentally important to chemistry, structural biology and materials science. New advances in dose control and the use of artificial intelligence to analyse the large and complex datasets generated by liquid cell experiments are promising to expand the frontiers of our understanding of liquid systems/interfaces in wide-ranging applied technologies in the medical sciences, the environment and clean renewable energy. The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide a forum for scientists to share the current state of the art in liquid cell microscopy and to define a pathway for future developments. Articles dealing with all aspects of the theory, practice and applications of liquid cell microscopy are welcome.

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.
