Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The chemistry of the Sleeping Beauty gold has attracted interest in basic chemistry and applications. Why is gold so attractive? Gold complexes have shown applications in volatile organic compound sensors, liquid crystal displays, optical limiting diodes, surface modification, and rheumatoid arthritis treatment. Gold has served as the main initiative in nanotechnology applications in catalysis, cancer detection, and energy conversion. Aurophilic bonding, which reproduces the attractive forces between the gold atoms, has imparted unique properties in gold chemistry and probably is the foundation of the unique electronic and optoelectronic properties of gold. This Special Issue focuses on recent advances in gold chemistry toward synthesis and applications in the optical, medical, nanotechnological, and catalytic fields.

Submission

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. Inorganics is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
