The molecular scale is increasingly being considered as a possible solution for the miniaturization of the components used in the construction of working devices. Molecule-based devices offer remarkable prospects for sensitivity and selectivity levels that cannot be reached with conventional solid-state materials. It is however necessary, to reproduce traditional electronic functions. This is issue is dedicated to different research topics from Synthesis to Solid State Physics, Nanotechnology and Theory of molecular materials based on Inorganic and Organometallic chemistry with specific focus on NanoElectronics, Spin Crossover Molecular Materials, Switchable Molecular Materials, Switchable nanoparticles, Molecular Magnetism, Photo-Magnetism, Thin films and Nano-Structures, Single Molecular Materials, Conducting Molecular Materials, Dielectric Properties, Spectroscopic techniques, Ultrafast spectroscopies, Structural studies, Phase transition phenomena, Statistical and Quantum Theories, bringing our knowledge towards new frontiers of materials science.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
