Dear all,

“Journal of Molecular Liquid” (Elsevier; IF: 5.065) welcomes contributions to the special issue on “Novel Technological Molecular Liquids: from their Formulation and Characterisation to their Potential Applications“. This issue will be edited by Mounir El Achaby, Associate Professor at Mohammed VI Polytechnic University, and Jacquemin Johan, Associate Professor at Université de Tours in France, and affiliated Professor at UM6P.

This Special Issue aims to provide an original and unique environment for researchers in academia and industry to share and discuss their cutting-edge results on the physical and applied chemistry of novel fluids (such as ionic liquids, deep eutectic solvents, water-in-salt, porous liquids, nanofluids, fillers containing biomaterials and nanoparticles, aerogels, novel heat transfer fluids, etc.), covering their in-depth characterization and/or modeling with the respect of the journal scope, to their potential applications.

The article may be either a full paper or a communication based on your own research in this area, or may be a focused review article on some aspects of the subject. All submissions will be subject to peer review. Could you, please, let me know if you will be happy to participate to this SI by replying to this e-mail with a tentative title and/or scope. If you plan to submit a review article please provide me with a title and brief description at your earliest convenience, in order to avoid multiple reviews covering the same material.
