Special Issue "Symmetry in Molecular Aggregation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2023) | Viewed by 2377
The ability to aggregate determines the key properties of molecular systems that find applications in molecular electronics, laser physics, supramolecular chemistry, advanced materials, numerous biochemical applications, etc. The key feature of this process is the formation of nanoscale aggregates, which modify the macroscopic physical properties of solute resulting in outcomes of practical importance ranging from the discovery of new perspective materials to treatment of human diseases.
Of particular interest are studies of the properties of molecular aggregates in terms of symmetry. For example, do the properties of intrinsically symmetric linear aggregates (ABABA or BAAB) differ from those of mutually symmetric ones (ABAA and AABA)? What are the properties of self-associates consisting of enantiomers? We invite chemists, physicists, mathematicians, biologists, and specialists in other related sciences to share their work for this Special Issue, which covers but is not limited to the questions described above.

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.
