Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Extreme conditions research bridges coordination chemistry, solid state chemistry, structure, magnetism, and spectroscopy and can be used to unravel new physical behavior in superconductivity, charge transport, and magnetism. Pressure can be applied to a range of molecular magnetic materials, including single-molecule magnets, spin crossover complexes, spin chains, and magnetic frameworks. Here, applied pressure provides a direct probe for investigating magnetostructural correlations, avoiding the need to examine numerous different chemical derivatives of a given material. It is rapidly becoming a convenient tool to study molecular magnetic materials, where it has been used to increase magnetic ordering temperatures, change the orientation of Jahn–Teller axes, and control magnetic anisotropy.

This Special Issue of Magnetochemistry aims at publishing a collection of research contributions illustrating recent achievements in all aspects of the development, study, and understanding of magnetic properties at extreme conditions.

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. Magnetochemistry 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 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.
