Special Issue in Inorganics: Redox-Active Ligand Complexes
The field of molecule-based magnetic materials relies, in part, on the creativity of synthetic chemists to design and prepare new molecules with desirable magnetic properties. This is challenging work but tremendous strides have been made over the past 35 years in the understanding of how unpaired electrons communicate with each other within organic molecules, transition- or lanthanide ion complexes, and more recently, in the understanding of the essential role that magnetoanisotropy plays in molecular magnetism and learning to control and enhance magnetic exchange and anisotropy in new molecular designs. In this Special Issue of Crystals, we will celebrate some of these recent efforts in the field of molecule-based magnetism with a focus on creativity in the design and synthesis of new molecular materials.

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 1600 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.
