Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Metal–organic frameworks (MOF) composed of various metal centers and ligands are a hot research topic. MOFs present tunable composition and rich structural diversity beyond conventional solid-state materials. These features endow them to be used in a wide potential application field such as adsorptive separation/storage of hydrocarbon mixtures with MOF-based membranes or columns, and catalysis for various important chemical processes. Especially, with Nano/Micro MOF precursors, some interesting materials with special compositions and structures can be obtained, which would be difficult to be obtained by conventional methods. These Nano/Micro MOF-derived materials show excellent performance and potential applications when used in energy-related processes or devices.
This Special Issue of Chemistry is intended to present the recent advances in Nano/Micro MOF-based materials for energy conversion and storage. Authors are encouraged to submit various types of articles addressing this theme in this Special Issue. Topics include, but are not limited to Nano/Micro MOF-related materials for the following issues:
4) CO2 capture/N2 reduction；
5) Gas storage;
6) Design, synthesis, and characterization.
Please note that invited manuscripts do not guarantee their final acceptance, all submitted manuscripts will undergo vigorous external evaluation.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Chemistry is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1600 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.
