During the last two decades, gold complexes have developed into an important class of new compounds which are engaged in biomedical and catalytic applications and in many other areas, thus attracting ever-growing attention from the scientific community.
This Special Issue is aimed at highlighting the most recent advances on gold coordination chemistry, as well as on the application of gold complexes. Therefore, for this Special Issue, we welcome contributions related to all aspects of this topic, covering novel synthesis, reactivity, advanced applications (for example, in catalysis, bioinorganic chemistry, material science), as well as mechanistic or thoretical studies, showcasing the variety and versatility of gold compounds achieved to date.
A fascinating aspect of gold coordination chemistry is that it is rapidly and continuously developing. In this regard, special attention will be given to the most recent and innovative aspects of gold coordination chemistry. In fact, in addition to papers dealing with traditional molecular complexes, particularly encouraged is the submission of contributions dealing with nonconventional interaction modes of gold centres (aurophilic interaction, hydrogen bonds, etc.), with ligand stabilized multinuclear gold compounds/gold nanoclusters, with supramolecular architechtures based on gold, and of course with the properties and potential applications of the resulting adducts. Thus, this Special Issue will also serve as a way of opening up new opportunities for sharing knowledge and promoting collaborations between researchers dealing with the different facets of this complex field today.
Short review articles, full papers, and communications are all 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. Molecules 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.
