Special Issue "New Findings of Magnetic Metal-Organic Framework Compounds"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 January 2021.
Interests: synthesis and design; coordination polymers; magnetic and electrical properties; thermal analysis; mixed-metal oxides
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) or coordination polymers (CPs) have been extensively studied due to a large variety of topologies and structures leading to a diverse platform of physical and chemical properties, which make them prototypes of multifunctional molecular materials.
Magnetic properties can be brought into MOFs by choosing suitable metal centres, organic linkers, and the manner of their connection, or by introducing functional molecules in the pores. In general, a primary aim of the investigation of magnetic materials is the upgrading of the properties of magnets and the exploration of new functions, especially together with other beneficial occurrence.
This following Special Issue of Materials will cover recent progress, novelties, and important findings regarding the magnetic properties of the metal-organic framework compounds. Publishing contributions of original research articles, focused on the synthesis and full characterizations based on the magnetic properties, both experimental and theoretical, of the above systems is our primary goal. Researches on multifunctional magnetic MOFs studied through an interdisciplinary approach are especially welcome.

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.
