Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to present our Special Issue of the journal C, focusing on the synthesis and optical and electronic properties of carbon-rich compounds, including small molecules and polymers. Researchers in the field of organic synthesis, carbon-based diradical compounds, semiconductors for organic electronics, carbon-rich dyes, new carbon allotropes, fullerenes, carbon nanotube fragments and curved aromatics are encouraged to submit their manuscripts. This Special Issue will include original articles and reviews in both experimental and theoretical fields related to the field of carbon-rich compounds.

The main focus of this Special Issue is the understanding of the structure–property relationships pertaining to carbon-rich compounds: aromaticity, optical properties, charge transport, light-harvesting, electronic devices, single-molecule magnetism and diradical character. Manuscripts presenting new synthetic organic methods towards carbon-rich compounds are also sought.

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. C is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1400 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.

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are crystalline materials with permanent porosity, composed of metal nodes and organic linkers whose well-ordered arrangement enables them to act as ideal templates to produce materials with a uniform distribution of heteroatom and metal elements. The hybrid nature of MOFs, well-defined pore structure, large surface area and tunable chemical composition of their precursors, led to the preparation of various MOF-derived porous carbons with controlled structures and compositions bearing some of the unique structural properties of the parent networks. In this regard, an important class of MOFs constructed with porphyrin ligands were described, playing significant roles in the metal distribution within the porous carbon material. The most striking early achievements using porphyrin-based MOF porous carbons are here summarized, including preparation methods and their transformation into materials for electrochemical reactions.
