For a long period of time, intensive studies have been conducted on iridium complexes. For example, a detailed study on the reactivity of the Vaska's complex, which was performed mainly in the 1960s, contributed to the development of organometallic chemistry. Recently, stoichiometric reactions involving iridium complexes, such as C–H and C–C bond cleavage, have been studied by many researchers and greatly helped to deepen the basic understanding of extremely difficult substrate conversion reactions.
Lately, studies that consider iridium complex as a functional material have vigorously progressed. For example, iridium complexes have attracted significant interest as light emitting materials. Some known complexes have already been developed to a practical level. Furthermore, the catalytic chemistry of iridium complexes is currently in the developmental phase; not only utilizations in conventional hydrogenation reactions, but also a number of publications on new catalytic systems for C–H borylation, allylic substitution, dehydrogenative oxidation of organic substrates, etc. have been appeared.
In this Special Issue, we intend to reveal new functions of iridium complexes and to perform studies for future development.

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. Inorganics 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 1400 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.
