There is a tremendous amount of interest in the design and construction of sustainable asphalt pavement systems among academics, industries, government entities and various stakeholders. This Special Issue aims to provide a unique platform to exchange ideas on topics related to the materials, design, production and chemical application aspects of asphalt technology. This Special Issue aims to provide a unique flatform to exchange ideas on topics related to the materials, design, production and processing, construction, and maintenance aspects of asphalt technology. We especially welcome articles on the chemistry of asphalt, fundamental asphaltic material characterization, innovative material design and synthesis, such as the bio-asphalt and chemistry modification of asphalt with polymers and waste plastics, modeling using methodologies such as molecular dynamics and atomic force microscopy, as well as pavement mechanics and performance modeling using mechanics or empirical-based approaches. We also believe that topics related to the chemistry aspect of cement materials, concrete, and chemical stabilization are suitable for this Special Issue.
This Special Issue will cover recent progress and trends in the utilization of chemistry in pavement material practice, but also in the research and development front. Submissions are welcome, but are not limited to the topics listed. Types of contributions to this Special Issue can be full research articles, short communications, and reviews focusing on advances in asphalt materials and other pavement materials.

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 papers will be 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 2000 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.
