Special Issue "Schiff Base and Its Metal Complexes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2019).
Interests: supramolecular chemistry; metal salophen/salen complexes; molecular recognition; weak interactions; uranyl and zinc-Schiff base complexes
Schiff bases are one of the most popular and old ligands in coordination chemistry. Known since 1864 when, for the first time, Ugo Schiff reported on products deriving from the condensation of ketones or aldehydes with primary amines, such derivatives have been extensively used for countless applications. Their easy synthesis allows for finetuning of their stereo-electronic features, and their ability to form stable complexes with most transition metals easily provides access to a large variety of derivatives with remarkable biological and catalytic activities, electroluminescent, fluorescence and nonlinear properties that can be used in many research fields for exciting applications.
For this Special Issue of Molecules, I would like to kindly invite worldwide colleagues working in this research area to submit original research articles and reviews on all the aspects of the chemistry of these ligands and of their metal complexes.

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 2000 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.
