Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The distinctive characteristics and diverse applications of ionic liquids position them as an appealing subject for research and development across various scientific and industrial domains. Despite their potential, the ionic liquid community faces several challenges hindering the exploration and development of these unique solvents for diverse applications. To address these challenges and promote the utilization of ionic liquids in innovative and sustainable manners, collaborative endeavors involving researchers, industries, and regulatory bodies are imperative. This Special Issue serves as a platform for researchers and scientists to share innovative research ideas, fostering the realization of the complete potential of ionic liquids in modeling, design and applications. The topics covered include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Thermodynamic modeling of ionic liquids;
  2. Molecular dynamics simulation of ionic liquids;
  3. Ionic liquid solvent design;
  4. Ionic liquid-based process design;
  5. Ionic liquids in CO2 capture;
  6. Ionic liquids in electrolyte chemistry.

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. Processes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 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.
