Molecular magnets, spin-crossover compounds, molecular photomagnetism, among others, are interdisciplinary research fields, bringing the knowledge of chemists, physicists and material sciences together. Although this area has been investigated for decades, the last few years have seen advances due to the preparation of new areas (for example multifunctional molecular magnets), the involvement and combination of new experimental techniques (for example advances in temperature dependent Raman spectroscopy and other related methods), and advances in the direction of actual application of available substances for technological use (for example the preparation of stable thin films, showing write and readable properties for data storage).
The aim of the present Special Issue is to bring scientists from different fields together to report about their latest findings in original papers, review articles or short communications. We look forward to receiving your submissions.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
