N-Heterocyclic Carbenes (NHCs) have witnessed tremendous growth over the last quarter century, since the report by Arduengo and coworkers, in 1991, on the isolation of the first stable free carbene. However, the synthesis of the first (NHC)-metal complexes was reported back in 1968 by Ofele and Wanzlick. The ubiquitous nature of these carbene ligands allowed them to become privileged ligands in the area of organometallics and catalysis. More recently, the chemistry of metallo-carbenes has started gain interest from other fields by acting as metallodrugs, in metallosupramolecular chemistry and also in the area of photoluminescence. Indeed, due to their strong σ-donor, a novel class of stable luminescent materials with useful properties was obtained. This Special Issue aims to highlight the structural and chemical diversity of N-heterocyclic carbene metal complexes, as well as their broad fields of application.

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. Inorganics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 550 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.
