N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) have become state-of-the-art ligands in organometallic chemistry due to their strong donating ability. Their properties can be easily influenced through modification of the backbone and substituents leading to stable complexes with a wide range of metal centres, which have found applications in diverse areas such as catalysis, materials, bioorganometallic and supramolecular chemistry. Current developments also include the synthesis of new stable NHCs or other related strong donor ligands, e.g. mesoionic carbenes, and their complexes. With this special issue on carbene complexes we are aiming to highlight the current diversity in this research area.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
