This Special Issue of Chemistry is entitled 'Featured Reviews in Inorganic Chemistry' and brings to the fore modern topics that are at the cutting edge of the discipline. Over the last number of decades, inorganic chemistry has matured, taking traditional synthetic and structural themes to a higher level. Modern synthetic approaches such as high and low temperature syntheses, hydrothermal techniques, chemical vapor deposition, and microwave syntheses have broadened the range of accessible compounds. The developments of metal–organic frameworks and of nanomaterials have captured the imagination of the inorganic chemist with a multitude of innovative applications. Inorganic coordination compounds complement organic materials in many areas, for example in sensing, emissive materials, and redox-active materials, and metal coordination compounds are at the heart of a plethora of catalytic processes.
This issue is open to reviews in all fields of inorganic chemistry, from synthesis and structure to theory and applications, and from discrete molecules to one-, two-, and three-dimensional assemblies.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Multitopic ligands in 2- and 3-dimensional assemblies;
- Dimetallic paddle-wheel motifs in crystal engineering;
- Sensing applications of coordination polymers;
- Polyoxometallates: structures and applications;
- Polyoxometallates: building blocks for new materials;
- Halogen bonds in inorganic crystals;
- Heterometallic metal-metal bonds;
- Advances in lanthanoid metal coordination compounds;
- Scorpionate ligands;
- Heavier main group metals.

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.
