Special Issue "Organophosphorus Chemistry 2016"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 December 2016)
Dr. Lee J. Higham
Organophosphorus chemistry continues to delight and inspire its many advocates, with the breadth of the subject stretching from fundamental studies into gaining an understanding of the bonding and reactivity of phosphorus compounds, all the way through to the myriad of important applications in a range of fields, including catalysis, agricultural control, biomedicine, and materials science. The range of oxidation states and coordination number in these compounds provides the creative phosphorus chemist with a diverse palette of structural type to investigate, which includes many significant classes, such as the phosphine oxides, phosphonates, phosphoranes, phosphonium salts, chiral phosphines, and the exotic phosphaalkynes/phosphalkenes, in addition to the upsurge of interest in the activation of elemental phosphorus itself. Fascinating breakthroughs continue to be made in all these areas and more, and this Special Issue seeks to highlight some of the most recent and exciting developments.

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 quarterly 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.
