All papers should demonstrate a molecular design or optimisation strategy targeting specific systems functionality and performance. Such methodologies having utility beyond the scope of the current work and covering multiple scales are particularly encouraged.
Examples of relevant systems and applications include, but are not limited to, the following.
Energy harvesting & storage: batteries, solar devices, fuel cells, thermoelectrics
Environmental: membranes, porous materials, detection & monitoring devices
Bioengineering: imaging & diagnostics, tissue engineering & regeneration, therapeutics design & delivery
Quantum engineering: computing, cryptography, sensors, photonics
Nano-manufacturing and control: directed self-assembly, nano-lithography
Hard and soft materials: liquid crystals, ceramics, lubricants, polymers, glasses
Electronics: molecular wires and switches, organic devices
Processes: solvents, chemical manufacturing, CO2 capture
Why publish in Molecular Systems Design & Engineering?
This journal partnership between the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) marks a significant collaboration between two distinguished societies. It will make your work visible to an expanded community of scientists and engineers, forge links between disciplines and accelerate advance in the field to help solve real-world problems. This is in addition to the rapid times to publication, efficient and fair peer review, and international exposure you receive when publishing in any of our journals.
The journal also offers:
- A dedicated editorial service
- Promotion of top articles
- Free colour, PDF reprints and electronic supplementary information (ESI)
- Open access options
