Complex or Coordination Compounds are ubiquitous. They cover the range from quite simple inorganic salts to elaborate metal-organic hybrid materials and intricate bioactive metalloproteins. Their present uses and their potential applications are as diverse as their compositions, their molecular and crystal structures and their chemical and physical properties. Besides their frequent generic use as chemical reactants, Complex Compounds are considered for extraction processes and waste treatment, for adsorption, sensor and storage materials, as catalysts, as optical emitters or transducers, and as active agent in remedies and for drug delivery. More academic topics like prediction, design, synthesis, stability, reaction kinetics, structure, or bonding properties of Complex Compounds, to name just a few, are of high interest as well. Some may even be considered as basis for any potential application.
The current Special Issue of Crystals provides a unique forum allowing the dissemination of results in any of the research areas related to Complex Compounds. Scientists working in these fields are invited to use this unique opportunity for presenting their work.
The topics summarized under the keywords should be considered only as examples. The volume is open for any advanced topics in the field of Complex Compounds.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1000 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.
