Special Issue "Tautomerism and Proton Transfer Related Phenomena"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Interests: tautomerism; proton transfer; hydrogen bonding; molecular switches; molecular sensors; dye chemistry; solvent effect; photo-, halo- and thermochromism; optical spectroscopy; computational chemistry; photochemistry
The aim of this Special Issue is to collect together scientific works related to the prototropic tautomerism and proton transfer in ground and excited state in the gas phase, solution and solid state. Experimental and theoretical studies describing the structural and environmental (solvent, temperature, acidity, irradiation) effects on the tautomeric equilibrium and the dynamics of proton transfer are welcome. Special emphasis will be given to conventional and high-tech dyes, molecular sensors, switches and machines, biologically active compounds, natural products, reaction intermediates and all other cases in organic chemistry, where prototropic tautomerism and proton transfer are involved.

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.
