Interests: Hypervalent iodine chemistry; Hypervalent bromine and chlorine chemistry; Chemistry of reactive intermediate; Kinetic studies; Theoretical chemistry; Photochemistry; Supramolecular chemistry
Hypervalent compounds have attracted great attention from organic and inorganic/physical/theoretical chemists, owing to their unique structural characteristics and reactivity. In particular, Group 17 elements, hypervalent compounds have enjoyed widespread application over recent decades. Especially, 5th period hypervalent iodine compounds have become increasingly important in modern organic synthesis, mainly because of their: (1) excellent reactivity arising from vastly enhanced nucleofugality; (2) high chemoselectivity; (3) environmentally friendly nature; and (4) distinctive safety record (low-toxicity, non-explosiveness). In this Special Issue, we invite articles and communications from colleagues who have investigated the chemistry of hypervalent iodine compounds (and related hypervalent bromine/chlorine compounds), including their synthesis, characterization, reaction and their application in materials synthesis. Specifically, spectroscopic, crystallographic, and theoretical analyses as well as photochemical, electrochemical, and mechanochemical reactions would be suitable for this Special Issue. The editors hope very much to receive many interesting and challenging research manuscripts on these topics.

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.
