Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metal clusters are remarkable compounds, which demonstrate the versatility of metals at forming the most various architectures at a molecular level. Within this field, metal clusters stabilized by carbonyl ligands are of great relevance, as documented by the isolation and characterization of countless examples of both homoleptic and heteroleptic species. TMCC are closely related to monolayer-protected nanoparticles and could find possible applications in the field of biology, catalysis, and nanoscience.

This Special Issue aims to collect the research contributions of recent advances in the syntheses, properties, and applications of TMCC and share them with a broad audience, to keep drawing attention to this fascinating area of scientific research.

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.
