Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The well-known and heterogeneous class of Schiff base ligands, named in this way after Hugo Schiff’s discoveries in the 19th century, has been developed in all fields for a very long time, and there are innumerous examples of metal complexes, ranging from mono- to oligo-nuclear and polymeric systems, and incorporating both transition metals and rare earth ions.

Nevertheless, new compounds with interesting properties and promising applications as new materials appear every day in the literature, which highlights the fact that the research with Schiff bases is still strongly active and very productive. Ranging from new synthesis to the rediscovery of known compounds, metal complexes with polydentate Schiff base ligands can be very attractive for their spectroscopic, magnetic, optical and biological properties, as well as for their reactivity and applications as efficient catalysts.

This Special Issue of the prestigious International Journal of Molecular Sciences in the Section ‘Physical Chemistry and Chemical Physics’ aims to collect original research papers as well as focused reviews in order to showcase the undiscovered potentials of oligonuclear Schiff base metal complexes and the study of their chemico-physical features from both the experimental and the theoretical points of view.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
