Special Issue "Transition Metal Complexes and their Applications"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2020.
Interests: Coordination and supramolecular chemistry - structure, reactivity; catalysis in aqueous (aqueous/organic) media, photocatalysis; crystal engineering for synthesis and characterization of MOF’s and CP’s; luminescent properties; reversible sensors; antiviral, antimicrobial and antitumor properties; synthesis a new water-soluble ligands.
Since the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for Swiss scientist Alfred Werner in 1913, coordination compounds have developed to an important class of new materials which are engaged in biomedical and catalytic applications and in many other areas. For this Special Issue, we are interested in original research papers covering the novel synthetic methods of coordination compounds and coordination polymers, including frequently used strategies for the molecular design, the important conditions of syntheses that have influences on the self-assembly and crystallization, as well as solvothermal reactions for coordination compounds, especially coordination polymers (CPs) and metal–organic frameworks (MOFs). An important advantage of this type of compounds is their rich applications. Therefore, for this Special Issue, we welcome contributions related to the potential applications of the transition–metal complexes in catalysis, molecular recognition and sensing, host–guest chemistry, electrical, biomedical applications, and as luminescent and magnetic 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
