Explorations of the short-timescale dynamics of chemical systems are pivotal for advancing our understanding of the detailed electronic/nuclear processes that govern chemistry at the molecular level. Recent advances in femtosecond time-resolved spectroscopy have enabled detailed studies of the early time dynamics in complex (supra)molecular systems that are important in many biological and chemical processes. The concurrent development and application of state-of-the-art computational methods have offered invaluable information on the mechanisms, thermochemistry, kinetics, and timescales associated with chemical systems in the isolated gas phase and in the bulk.
This Special Issue is dedicated to cutting-edge research in theoretical and experimental studies of ultrafast processes in chemical dynamics occurring in organic, inorganic, biological, and supramolecular systems. We encourage submissions of research articles covering all relevant topics spanning, for example, light-driven processes for energy conversion to photochemical reactions of biochemical relevance. We are excited at the prospect that this Special Issue will bring together an interdisciplinary and comprehensive overview of current state-of-the-art research addressing ultrafast dynamics in chemical systems.
We very much look forward to your submission.

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.
