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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Chemistry is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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). 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.

Multi-emissive compounds have attracted significant attention from the research community owing to the wide array of potential application areas. However, to move towards application, such systems should be readily immobilized by solution-based methods to form soft materials such as gels and films. Herein we report the use of Langmuir–Blodgett (LB) deposition to easily immobilize luminescent lanthanide-based amphiphilic solids into multi-emissive ultrathin LB films, by multilayering different luminescent amphiphiles. Utilizing this technique, we have reliably fabricated dual- and triple-emissive films where the overall emission from the film is tuned. Furthermore, we have demonstrated that these multi-emissive films are temperature-dependent, with emission profiles significantly altering from 294 to 340 K, resulting in colour changes and potential application as ultrathin, contactless ratiometric thermometer coatings.

Abstract
A new synthesis strategy towards gold-coated silica nanoparticles is presented. The method provides an efficient, reliable and facile-coating process of well-defined star-shaped shell structures, characterized by UV-Vis, TEM, PXRD, DLS and zeta-potential measurements. A marked red shift of the Au-based plasmonic band to [...] Read more.
A new synthesis strategy towards gold-coated silica nanoparticles is presented. The method provides an efficient, reliable and facile-coating process of well-defined star-shaped shell structures, characterized by UV-Vis, TEM, PXRD, DLS and zeta-potential measurements. A marked red shift of the Au-based plasmonic band to the region of the first biological window is observed offering great potential for future research of biological applications. Full article
