Research and development of novel functional hybrid materials and nanocomposites with extraordinary functionalities has become one of the most expanding fields in materials chemistry during recent years. One reason for this is that this class of research bridges various scientific disciplines. In an interdisciplinary manner, inorganic and organic chemistry, physical and biological sciences are united in the search for novel methods to create unique materials. The compounds formed often possess exciting new properties for future functional meterials and technological applications. The forthcoming special issues of the "International Journal of Molecular Sciences" shall meet the requirements for an actual overview over this most interesting research discipline.

All papers should be submitted to email@example.com. To be published continuously until the deadline and papers will be listed together at the special issue website.
Submitted papers should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All papers are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors is available on the Instructions for Authors page. The International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed monthly journal published by MDPI.
Open Access publication fees are 800 CHF per paper. English correction fees and/or formatting fees (250 CHF) will be added in certain cases (1050 CHF per paper for those papers that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections).
