Special Issue "Direct (Hetero)Arylation: A New Tool for Organic Electronics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2018)
Direct (hetero)arylation is a novel and powerful tool for the synthesis of cheap and efficient polymeric and oligomeric semiconductors. Indeed, this innovative method allows the formation of carbon-carbon bonds between arenes and aryl halides, which do not require organometallic intermediates thereby significantly reducing both synthetic steps and cost. Highly-promising studies have been reported in the last five years, but it is the purpose of this Special Issue to show how conjugated polymers and small molecules prepared from direct (hetero)arylation can be utilized in different devices (light-emitting diodes, transistors, solar cells, electrochemical cells, sensors, etc.). This Special Issue will contain different formats of contributions (original research, reviews, communications and letters), discussing aspects broadly indicated by the keywords.

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 monthly 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.
