A section of Chemistry (ISSN 2624-8549).
The Molecular Inorganics Section of Chemistry covers the core and applied aspects of discrete inorganic compounds, incorporating main group elements and/or d- and f-block metals. The scope of this Section includes the synthesis and characterization of new compounds, and their characterization by experimental methods, including spectroscopic and mass spectrometric methods and single crystal X-ray diffraction methods, as well as investigations and applications of physical and chemical properties. Papers dealing with the synthesis and structure of a single compound will not usually be considered, unless the work is of particular significance. Theoretical investigations of the bonding in discrete molecular species are welcomed, as are analyses of data to explore structure–property relationships.
Contributions to the Molecular Inorganics Section of Chemistry can be in the form of original articles, communications, or reviews. In addition, Special Issues on high impact topics will also be published.
Topics that fall within the scope of the journal include:
- Biologically active inorganic compounds;
- Bonding in discrete compounds;
- Coordination compounds;
- Homogeneous catalysis;
- Magnetic behavior of discrete metal complexes;
- Main group chemistry;
- Main group cluster compounds;
- Metal complexes as models for metalloenzymes;
- Metal complexes for energy applications;
- Organometallic compounds;
- Single crystal structures;
- Structure–property relationships;
- Theoretical and computational studies.
Following special issue within this section is currently open for submissions:
- Lanthanoid and Actinoid Complexes (Deadline: 31 January 2024)
