This Special Issue is dedicated to demonstrating recent advances in molecular reaction dynamics research frontier.

Molecular reaction dynamics, as an important fundamental science subject, has been quickly developed and crossed with many other physical and chemical subjects. The dynamics mechanism of the molecular reactions and systems has also been applied in more and more research fields. This special issue will cover all the research frontiers on molecular reaction dynamics. Both theoretical and experimental works on the dynamics, excited state, hydrogen bonding, ultrafast spectroscopy, photophysics, and quantum chemistry, and so on, are welcome to contribute to this special issue.

Aim and scope:

Gas phase reaction kinetics and dynamics; Condensed phase molecular reaction dynamics; Biomacromolecular structures and dynamics; Materials dynamics simulation and computation; Excited state and photophysics of complex systems; Ultrafast molecular spectroscopy and dynamics; Atomic and molecular photoelectronic spectra; Hydrogen bonding in electronic excited states; Fluorescent molecular probes and materials; Nonadiabatic dynamics phenomena and mechanism; Quantum dynamics and computational chemistry.


The authors are kindly invited to register at our paper processing system at Editorial Manager and submit their contribution using a special track established for this topical issue. All papers will go through the Open Physics’ high standards, quick, fair and comprehensive peer-review procedure.
