Spyros P. Perlepes is an Emeritus Professor in the Chemistry Department of the University of Patras, Patras, Greece. He has been an active researcher in inorganic chemistry for the last 40 years or so, with many remarkable achievements in the chemistry of metal complexes. His research interests cover a variety of topics ranging from the development of new synthetic methods and the systematic study of the reactivity of coordinated ligands, to the preparation of homo- and heterometallic complexes with interesting properties (optical, magnetic, catalytic) and the chemistry of non-dangerous 5f metals.
The title of this Special Issue is “Coordination Chemistry: Current Developments and Future Perspectives”. Its central goal is to show that Coordination Chemistry is a vibrant and highly interdisciplinary field with a brilliant future. The aim of this issue is to provide readers of Chemistry with a compilation of high-quality research papers and reviews in all areas of Coordination Chemistry. These include (but are not limited to) synthetic aspects, design of ligands, the chemistry of coordination clusters, coordination polymers and Metal–Organic Frameworks (MOFs), Bioinorganic and Medicinal Inorganic Chemistry, molecular materials based on complexes, solution chemistry and mechanistic studies, stoichiometric or catalytic organic transformations by metal complexes, physical and spectroscopic properties of coordination compounds, improvement of existing or development of new methods for the detailed study of metal complexes, their applications in life and other fields of science, and prognosis for the future. Both experimental and theoretical studies are welcome.

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.
