Special Issue "Solid-State NMR Spectroscopy in Materials Chemistry"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2019).
Interests: solid state NMR; disordered materials; oxide-based glasses; glass structure; bioactive glasses; biomineralization; molecular dynamics simulations; spin dynamics simulations; rf-pulse sequence design in magic-angle spinning NMR
The element-specific and non-invasive nature of solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, coupled with its ability to readily probe structures across a subnanometer scale, have rendered it a ubiquitous method for studying structure and dynamics in vast groups of structurally ordered, as well as disordered materials. Solid-state NMR spectroscopy is continuously developing concerning enhancements of signal sensitivity and resolution. Notably, dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) NMR has opened up new avenues for probing species at very low concentrations, whereas “NMR crystallography” combines solid-state NMR experiments with density functional theory calculations for solving structures.
For this Special Issue, we invite new scientific reports as well as reviews on “Solid-State NMR Spectroscopy in Materials Chemistry”, taken in its broadest scope/meaning—encompassing investigations on the structure, order, and dynamics of materials by solid-state NMR, as well as developments of new such techniques. We also welcome submissions on the application of solid-state NMR for monitoring chemical processes, ranging from sol–gel preparations to solid-state chemistry, as well as to material-related problems in fields such as catalysis, biomineralization, and green chemistry.

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.
