Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) have received extensive interest as an emerging class of highly promising crystalline microporous materials promoted by the application of a set of well-established principles of coordination chemistry. With highly dispersed metal sites, intrinsic high porosity, and a high internal surface area, MOFs have been extenisely applied in catalysis, storage and separation, and drug delivery. Moreover, MOFs can be used as the template for the synthesis of metal oxides, carbides, nitrides, sulfides, phosphides, and selenides (marked as X-ides), which can be employed in the fields of energy conversion and storage, biomedicine, and electromagnetic absorption.

This Special Issue, entitled “Current Trends in MOF (Metal–Organic Framework) and Metal X-ides Development, 2nd Edition”, welcomes the submission of original scientific research articles, comprehensive reviews, and communications in this field, with a focus on all aspects of the design, characterization, evaluation, and development of MOFs and metal X-ides.

This special issue is supervised by Dr. Siwei Li and assisted by our Topical Advisory Panel Member Dr. Ying Guo (Northwestern Polytechnical University).

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
