Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Redox active ligands display reversible redox changes between several stable oxidation states. Coordination complexes, involving redox-active ligands are of interest for applications in a plethora of research areas such as small molecule catalytic transformations, molecular electronics, molecular magnetism or spintronics. The interest for such ligands has been attracting increasing attention over the last decade due to the possibility of observing electron-transfer processes which paves the route to new catalytic reactivity, interesting phenomena, i.e., valence tautomerism, switching of the optical and magnetic properties.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to cover the latest advances on all aspects of the redox-active ligand involved in coordination chemistry through research articles, as well as review contributions from both experimental and theoretical points of view.

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.
