Coordination chemistry is a huge and very important field in modern chemical science. Coordination compounds are integral in modern catalytic transformations, material science, separation technologies, biological processes, and other fields. In principle, the classical coordination compound consists of two parts: the metal cation and the ligand(s). The Periodic Table displays a restricted amount of metals. In contrast, the design and synthesis of new ligands have established new frontiers in coordination chemistry. Therefore, this Special Issue focuses on the ligands used for coordination chemistry. All fundamental or practically oriented aspects of this field within this Special Issue include the design, synthesis, and study of coordination properties of ligands; their use for separation techniques; the photo-physical properties of ligands and their complexes; and many others. All colleagues active in this field are invited to contribute to this Special Issue by presenting original papers or short reviews in the field.

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.
