Hybrid and Composite Crystalline Materials

A section of Crystals (ISSN 2073-4352).

Section Information

This section, like the others in this journal, ensures rapid publication of research results.

It covers topics related to chemistry and structure of diverse hybrid and composite crystalline materials, design and engineering of these materials, and their applications. Hybrid and composite crystalline materials include, inter alia, coordination polymers; metal–organic frameworks; covalent organic frameworks; hierarchical zeolites and zeolite-like materials; organic–inorganic hybrids; composites based on graphene, carbon nitride, or layered sulfides; and composites based on metal, metal oxide, metal chalcogenide or metal pnictide nanoparticles stabilized with organic ligands or polymers (such nanoparticles can be either unsupported or supported onto appropriate matrices). Other topics related to design and application of hybrid and composite crystalline materials are welcome. For example, coordination chemistry, the influence of intermolecular interactions on the geometry and arrangement of species constituting hybrid and composite crystalline materials, and cooperative and synergistic effects will all be considered.

Original research articles, reviews, letters, and communications are all suitable submissions. Particularly, we anticipate publishing work related to the following topics listed below, although other topics are also welcome.
