Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Supramolecular design to achieve specific physical properties is an important goal in materials research, where the interplay between different covalent and non-covalent interactions plays a major role in this quest. Non-covalent interactions, such as hydrogen bonds, halogen bonds, chalcogen bonds, and π–π interactions, are key crystal engineering tools in the development of the molecular materials field.

This Special Issue of Crystals aims to publish a collection of state-of-the-art research papers illustrating the recent achievements in the development of crystal engineering in conducting and magnetic molecular materials based on tetrathiafulvalene or bis(dithiolene) compounds, as well as their potential applications.

Dr. Sandra Rabaça

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 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. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 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.
