Organometallic chemistry is a broadly defined area at the intersection of inorganic and organic chemistry. The chemistry of compounds containing metal carbon and metal hydrogen bonds has been extensively explored and continues to dominate much of the research in catalysis. Over the years organometallic complexes and compounds have found tremendous utility in numerous areas including, but not limited to, organic synthesis, catalysis, and medicinal chemistry. The focus of this special issue is to present papers that cover the wide range of organometallic chemistry including: synthesis, structure, and reactivity of compounds containing metal carbon bonds. Organometallic complexes with applications in medicinal chemistry, catalysis, or other synthetically useful transformations will be of particular interest. For the purposes of this special issue any isolable compound, proposed intermediate, or transition state containing a metal or metalloid with a bonding interaction to carbon or hydrogen will be considered "organometallic". Manuscripts "in the spirit" of organometallic chemistry will also be considered.

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.
