Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Porphyrins, metalloporphyrins, and related macrocycles are important molecules in several fundamental studies and for applications in important fields. Natural and synthetic porphyrins have been studied for more than a century, and their structures were elucidated by the most important chemists who obtained the Nobel prize for their studies. Recently, such macrocycles have been widely used as active receptors in sensors, as catalysts, in photovoltaic scaffolds, in non-linear optics, in photodynamic therapy, etc. Recently, investigations on materials chemistry have considered more such molecules for new exciting studies. This issue in Materials aims to focalize the attention of the scientific community involved in searching of new materials on these macrocycles, and we hope that this call will encourage further studies on the properties of this class of molecules.

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.
