Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Functional magnetic molecular materials constitute a special class of "smart compounds" that combine various physical and chemical properties like porosity, gas/solvent sorption, electrical conductivity, ferroelectricity, redox activity, chirality, luminescence, and other optical properties with magnetism. Such combinations can lead to desirable switching/sensing behaviour and memory effects, which are necessary prerequisites for the construction of molecular devices. The field of functional magnetic molecular materials is under constant development, and new fascinating compounds are reported every day, leading to new discoveries and examples of strong coupling between magnetic properties and other functionalities.

The design and construction of functional magnetic molecular materials requires the close collaboration of chemists, theoreticians, physicists, and materials scientists. Moreover, a suitable communication platform is also necessary. The following Special Issue of Molecules is inteded to provide a useful forum for the dissemination of the most relevant and important findings in this vein, along with review contributions that summarize the recent developments in magnetic coordination polymers and MOFs, single molecule and single chain magnets, spin crossover materials, chiral magnets, ferroelectrics, multiferroics, and photomagnets.

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.
