Special Issue "Traversing the Boundaries of Inorganic Chemistry"
A special issue of Inorganics (ISSN 2304-6740).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 June 2016)
Inorganic Chemistry is one of the fundamental foundations upon which the chemical sciences are built, and the discipline remains a lynchpin of modern chemistry. Not only does inorganic chemistry embrace the meaning behind function and reactivity of combinations of most of the members of the periodic table, but also it provides a footing for studies of materials, catalysts, drugs, fuels, and industrial chemicals. Arguably, the role, reach, and importance of inorganics in society have never been as great as they are at present. Adventurous research at the heart of and at the extremes of Inorganic Chemistry is vital to further advances.
This Special Issue aims to collect high quality papers (original research articles or comprehensive review papers) in Inorganic Chemistry research fields. Highly experienced practitioners from various fields within the journal’s scope are welcome to contribute papers, highlighting the latest developments in their research areas, or detailed summaries of their own work done thus far.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- synthesis and characterization of inorganic compounds, complexes, and materials
- structure and bonding in inorganic molecular and solid state compounds
- spectroscopic and magnetic properties of inorganic compounds
- chemical reactivity, physical properties, and applications of inorganic compounds and materials
- mechanisms of inorganic reactions
- organometallic compounds
- inorganic cluster chemistry
- heterogeneous and homogeneous catalytic reactions promoted by inorganic compounds
- thermodynamics and kinetics of significant new and known inorganic compounds
- supramolecular systems and coordination polymers
- bio-inorganic chemistry and applications of inorganic compounds in biological systems and medicine
- environmental and sustainable energy applications of inorganic compounds and materials

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 550 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.
