    Special Issue on Chemical Structure Analysis


    A chemical structure determination includes a chemist's specifying the molecular geometry and, when feasible and necessary, the electronic structure of the target molecule or other solid. The methods by which one can elucidate the structure of a molecule include spectroscopies such as nuclear magnetic resonance (proton and carbon-13 NMR), various methods of mass spectrometry (to give overall molecular mass, as well as fragment masses), and x-ray crystallography when applicable.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring Chemical Structure Analysis. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Molecular geometry  
    • Molecular structure and behavior  
    • Molecular spectroscopy and molecular structure
    • Theoretical investigations of molecular structures     
    • Vibrational spectroscopy of molecular crystals
    • Chemical bonding analysis
    • Instruments of chemical structure analysis
    • Computational chemistry methods
    • Techniques of chemical structure analysis


    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue - Chemical Structure Analysis” should be selected during your submission.
