Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Sulfur-nitrogen heterocycles (and Se-N/Te-N systems) have been known for many years but continue to excite attention as a consequence of the exciting new systems which are being prepared sometimes by rather unpredictable routes. Apart from fundamental synthetic and mechanistic chemistry new S-N, organo S-N (and their heavier selenium and tellurium congeners) have great potential in new electronic and magnetic materials. The area encompasses synthesis, heterocycles, ionic materials, conductors, superconductors, new magnetic materials and utilises a wide range of computational and spectroscopic methods.

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.

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).
