Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hybrid functional materials, made of both inorganic and organic components, represent potential and attractive platforms for applications in many different fields such as nanoelectronics, hybrid perovskite photovoltaics, drug delivery, bioimaging and so on. The material properties of hybrid materials can be tuned by modification of the composition on the molecular scale to produce smart materials with an emphasis on the development of advanced synthetic routes and integration strategies. The significant chemical tunability of hybrid materials allows us to enhance chemical, electrochemical, magnetic or electronic characteristics as well as to design completely new materials. In this respect, hybrid functional materials are a key topic in the current materials chemistry field and new trends, applications and perspectives will be covered by a dedicated Special Issue 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. 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.
