Luminescent materials have attracted much attention in the past few decades owing to their potential applications in newly emerged technologies such as organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) and memory devices in the areas of information security, solar cells, chemical sensors, and bio-imaging. Luminescent compounds are used in biochemistry and medicine both for the treatment of some diseases and for early diagnosis. Despite the large number of publications on this subject, many questions concerning the relationship between the structure of compounds and their photo-(electro-, thermo-, and mechano-)luminescent properties remain unresolved. In addition, many known luminophores do not withstand the high performance requirements for the materials, as well as have a high cost, which limits their use. Thus, the targeted molecular and crystalline design of luminescent compounds (from single molecules to MOFs and nanoclusters) with given characteristics, the creation of new devices based on them, as well as the search for fundamental structure–property relationships of luminophores are in the frontier of scientific research of scientists from various fields. In this regard, we invite you to publish your recent progress in the field of luminescent compounds in this Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences: “Advances in Luminescent Materials Design and Functionalization”.

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.
