Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Modern cluster chemistry is the wide and diverse science field. Cluster compounds are known for practically all transition and non-transition metals and metalloids. The structure and reactivity variety provides opportunity to obtain compounds with plenty of useful properties. Cluster systems find application in various field: medicine, material science, catalysis etc. Present Special Issue is devoted to all edges of modern cluster chemistry. Theoretical insight gives opportunity to understand main peculiarities of structure and chemical bonding in such system. Experimental investigations allow to find the best route for preparing molecular systems and elaborate their properties. The main aim of present Special Issue is to show interconnection between different fields of modern cluster chemistry and reveal the main trends. We welcome researchers to contribute their research work to our Special Issue. Investigations devoted to preparation of novel cluster compounds, their property, structure, reactivity and applications as well as other important topics are highly appreciated. We hope that the materials of this Special Issue will prove valuable and useful to a wide range of readers and researchers and will serve as a starting point for new fruitful work in the field of cluster chemistry.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2000 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.
