Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
It is worth recalling that as of last year, 125 years have passed since the pioneering work of Alfred Werner on the stereochemistry of coordination compounds which emphasized the number and nature of the groups attached to the metal ion. These compounds are still compelling and experimentally demanding frontiers in modern inorganic chemistry. Every year we observe the emergence of scientific reports on the synthesis of new complexes with unexpected bonding modes, structures, and properties.
This Special Issue of “Crystals” is expected to provide an excellent platform to report results that highlight the synthesis and crystal structures of coordination compounds. Furthermore, Hirshfeld surface analysis has become a widely used method, which is exploring intermolecular interactions within a crystal structure in a remarkable way.
As Guest Editor, I invite scientists from various fields to submit articles which discuss the crystal chemistry of coordination chemistry. This includes examples of synthesis and experimentally determined crystal structures. The new approaches towards the synthesis of coordination complexes are particularly encouraged.Dr. Waldemar Maniukiewicz

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. Crystals 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). 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.
