Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hybrid organic–inorganic materials with desirable properties have become a fascinating field of research in materials science. These refer to architectures consisting of both inorganic and organic components that contribute to their structural versatility and remarkable properties. Such materials can be classified into two large groups: Class I hybrids built by weak interactions between the components, such as van der Waals, hydrogen bonding, or weak electrostatic interactions, and Class II hybrid materials assembled by strong interactions between the components, like covalent bonds. Thus, they represent potential modular platforms for applications in diverse fields such as optics, micro-electronics, sensing, energy storage, drug delivery, catalysis, and pollutant remediation.

This Special Issue provides a way to present the achievements of the design of hybrids with different functionalities and their tailored properties. Furthermore, it also covers the synthesis and structural features that permit the discovery of new materials, their applications, and the theoretical studies of the structure–property relationships. Contributions to this Special Issue, in the form of original research or review articles, 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. 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.
