Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the last 20 years, the alteration of material properties to suit the needs of industries has taken a lot of effort, and there are numerous scientific areas that are concerned with this issue. The process of selecting materials featuring micro- and nanostructures, along with the manipulation of their physical states and/or properties, enables the enhancement of their inherent properties. This manipulation significantly improves their performance and paves the way for innovative applications across a spectrum of industries. This has always been a multidisciplinary field and thus the application of such "smart" materials is vast. These materials are indispensable in the field of pharmaceuticals where targeted application is key. Thus, the study of their symmetry and asymmetry within this realm of structural chemistry has demonstrated importance in a manner that allows them to become suitable vessels on a micro/nano scale.

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. 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.
