Polyoxometalates (POMs) are anionic metal oxide clusters of early transition metals (Mo, W, V, and Nb) in their highest oxidation states. POM-based materials have attracted great attention due to their outstanding physical and chemical properties that make them promising candidates for applications in various areas. The electronic and topological structures of POM systems can be tuned by incorporation of transition metal ions or groups of transition metal ions at specific sites of the various lacunary POM ligands. Thus, the resultant properties directed by the structure–property relationship allows for a bottom-up approach to the development of multifunctional materials. Within the class of transition metal-substituted POMs, the paramagnetic metal ion-containing POMs represents the largest subclass due to their remarkable structural diversities, different chemical compositions, and potential applications in the field of molecular magnetism, magnetocaloric refrigerants, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), magnetic sensing, molecular spintronics, and quantum computing.
This Special Issue invites research papers covering all research areas related to paramagnetic metal ion-containing POMs (magnetic POMs with 3d-transition metals ions, lanthanide ions, actinide ions, main group elements, heterometallic ions, and organic–inorganic hybrids), their preparation, characterization, and various applications.

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. Magnetochemistry 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 1800 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.
