Special Issue Information
In living organisms, there are many metalloenzymes that activate biologically active small molecules such as hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, methane, and carbon dioxide. Currently, the structures and functions of many of these enzymes are being clarified by excellent structural and spectroscopic analysis methods. At the same time, research is being conducted to mimic the structure and function of these enzymes using metal complexes, and to develop catalysts that can function under environmental-friendly conditions in order to contribute to our lives in the future. In this special issue, as a message to future bioinorganic chemists and catalysis researchers, we invite papers on design strategies of metals and ligands focusing on the activation of small molecules from many researchers, in this case, oxygen and nitrogen.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2300 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.
