Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

High-value product synthesis can be reached by means of alternative energy sources, such as ultrasound irradiation. Synthesis of organic molecules and nanoparticles for use in organic synthesis, catalyst preparation are important domains in the fine chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and ultrasound irradiation provides a source of mechanical energy which can be used to improve reaction rate, yield, and selectivity in a wide range of chemical processes. This Special Issue of the journal is devoted to chemical reactions induced or promoted by ultrasonic waves, namely, sonochemistry to provide an alternative to other enabling technologies with the aim to access new synthetic pathways, new mechanisms, and catalyst and nanoparticle preparation. Sonochemistry covers a multidisciplinary approach integrating chemistry, physics, and process technology, and therefore, the Special Issue is also addressed to the reactor design and to the development of a hybrid reactor in which synergistic effects of ultrasound combined with other technologies are studied for intensified chemical syntheses in terms of energy and resource efficiency.

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 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.
