Research on functional hybrid materials has become one of the most rapidly developing fields of materials chemistry. In its most basic sense, a hybrid material is obtained by combining at least two components, commonly inorganic and organic, at the nanometer scale. Methods to synthesize inorganic-organic hybrid materials are often based on soft chemistry approaches, such as sol-gel processes, intercalation, exchange, or grafting. Considering the variety of combinations of components (and properties), inorganic-organic hybrids represent an intriguing class of materials with a large spectrum of applications. This special issue of Materials focuses on the synthesis of functional inorganic-organic hybrid materials, on the elucidation of structure-property relationships, as well as on the organization of hybrid building blocks on the micro- and macroscopic scale.

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 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed quarterly journal published by MDPI. Review manuscripts: Before writing their manuscripts, potential authors of review articles should forward the title and a short abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then provide feedback on the suitability of the topic.
Article Processing Charges (APC)
Article Processing Charges (APC) will be waived for well prepared manuscripts of invited papers. For the first two volumes of this new journal the APC are of 300 CHF (or 550 CHF per paper for those papers that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections).
