Special Issue "Group 11 Metal Complexes with N-Heterocyclic Carbene Ligands: Recent Developments"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2017).
The major role of N-heterocyclic carbene (NHCs) as an essential class of ligands in organometallic chemistry is now well-established. The corresponding metal–NHC complexes have been extensively investigated for catalytic applications with a wide range of metals. Furthermore, some metal–NHC complexes have been shown to present interesting properties for medicinal applications. NHCs are also highly promising ligands for the development of functionalized metal-based materials. They have been involved as free NHCs or in metal–NHC complexes for the preparation/stabilization of metal-based nanoparticles and self-assembled monolayers (SAMs). Metal–NHC complexes with group 11 metals hold an important place in these different research areas and present a significant potential for future applications.
This Special Issue of Molecules will seek to highlight recent developments of metal–NHC complexes with group 11 metals (metal = Cu, Ag, Au) in a range of areas including the preparation and structure of Cu, Ag or Au–NHC complexes, catalysis, biological applications, nanomaterials and surfaces, and supramolecular chemistry.

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 1800 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.
