As Guest Editor, I am pleased to announce this Special Issue, “Inorganic Layered Compounds”. The family of inorganic layered materials represents an attracting and fascinating research field, including several classes of compounds with different and, sometimes, complementary features, in terms of chemical structure and reactivity. From natural clays to synthetic and advanced materials, from the early studies on intercalation reactions to those on sophisticated and tailor-made properties, layered compounds offer a valuable support to researchers and, in turn, to the technological development in many fields, among them energy, biology, medicine, conservation of cultural heritage.
The ambition of the present issue is to collect contributions from many experts, worldwide, in this field, thus providing an overview of the most recent studies on layered compounds, including synthesis, characterization, reactivity, and applications. The Special Issue will be dedicated to the main classes of layered compounds, among them graphite and graphene, M(IV) phosphates and phosphonates, clays, layered double hydroxides, layered perovskites, transition metal dichalcogenides, but the submission of papers on new layered compounds is also highly appreciated. At the same time, researchers are encouraged to highlight their studies on new synthetic routes, as well as the identification of new properties and innovative applications of layered compounds.

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 1000 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.
