Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The discovery of ferrocene in the early 1950s brought new life to coordination chemistry and also paved the way to establishing organometallic chemistry as a specific and independent chemical discipline. Since then, numerous studies have focused on the specific bonding principles and reactivity of the ferrocene molecule and possible applications of ferrocene and its derivatives in various fields ranging from the classical areas such as coordination chemistry, organic synthesis and electrochemistry to rapidly developing interdisciplinary fields of materials research, catalysis and biomedicine (and many others).

This Special Issue is intended to highlight the current trends and perspective research focused on ferrocene and ferrocene-containing compounds to demonstrate the enormous width of contemporary ferrocene chemistry and its huge application potential. Researchers studying various aspects of ferrocene chemistry are kindly invited to propose relevant state-of-the-art reviews and, mainly, research papers to be published in this Special Issue of Molecules.

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. Molecules 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 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs), a 50% discount will apply to papers accepted for publication in the Special Issue "Ferrocene and Ferrocene-Containing Compounds". 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.
