Special Issue in Molecules: Computational and Theoretical Studies on Isomeric Organic Compounds
Symmetry plays a pivotal role in the permanently moving Univer and also in the continuously progressing life on the Earth. It can be found in the macro- and microworlds of plants, animals, and humans. Symmetry exists in human nature, and it reveals itself in human products of different constructive and artworks, as well as in scientific theories and laws. In acid-base chemistry, the symmetry concept has been introduced in structural studies on chemical compounds possessing an acid, base, or amphoteric character, and additionally in physicochemical, analytical, and spectroscopic investigations on their acid-base properties. Consequently, detailed analyses of internal (structural) and external (solvent) effects on these properties have led to formulating exciting structure–reactivity relationships that are very useful to design new mono- or polyfunctional molecules of desired acidity or basicity. They also help to understand the action of bioactive molecules and drugs in living organisms and to explain the mechanisms of various biochemical processes.

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. Symmetry 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.
