Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As the Guest Editors of Molecules` Special Issue on "Recent Developments in the Supramolecular Chemistry of Terpyridine–Metal Complexes”, it is our pleasure to invite you to submit an article on this topic. Terpyridine–metal complexes represent an important class of coordination compounds which are currently applied in a range of cutting-edge applications: (photo)catalysis, medicine, opto-electronics, photovoltaics, etc. Furthermore, such complexes have been implemented into polymer architectures, thus generating metallo-supramolecular polymers possessing self-assembly and stimuli-responsive properties (e.g., self-healing behavior). Finally, nano-sized architectures have been derived making use of metallo-supramolecular self-sorting/self-assembly processes. Many fascinating examples of shape-persistent or dynamic 2D/3D assemblies have been reported in recent years.

This Special Issue is devoted to the synthesis, characterization and/or application of new terpyridine–metal complexes. We are looking forward to receive contributions addressing either of these fields – on the small-molecule or macromolecular level. The article may be either a full paper or a communication based on your own current research in this area of coordination chemistry, or may be a focused review article on some aspect of the subject. All submissions will be subject to peer review.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
