Supramolecular cage complexes are entering a new era in which applications are becoming the highlights of publications while the structural aspects of the metalla-assemblies are relegated to basic characterizations. Known applications for supramolecular cage complexes include sensing, cavity controlled catalysis, host-guest-chemistry, drug delivery, and soon other applications will appear. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that I’m inviting you to submit your recent contributions in the field of supramolecular cage complexes for this special issue of Materials. Review, concept and research articles are welcomed for this special issue: The overall goal being to provide to the readers an overview of the field with an emphasis on the actual and future applications of supramolecular cage complexes.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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 monthly journal published by MDPI.
