Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Supramolecular chemistry is the paradigm of modern inorganic chemistry and materials science. Both solid-state chemistry and solution inorganic chemistry are based on various weak (or not so weak) non-covalent interactions. Electrostatic interactions play a dominant role in ionic chemical systems. Many interesting supramolecular associates can be determined and observed in gas phase using advanced analytical techniques. Finally, elementary stages of chemical reactions (including catalytic ones) are caused by such weak inter- and intramolecular contacts as hydrogen, halogen, chalcogen, and tetrel bonds, as well as stacking (and other pi-system involved) interactions and metallophilic contacts.

The aim of this Special Issue of Inorganics, entitled “Supramolecular inorganic chemistry”, is to address the most recent progress in the rapidly growing field of supramolecular inorganic chemistry. Both experimental and theoretical studies, fundamental and applied research, and any form of manuscripts (for example, reviews, mini-reviews, full papers, short communications, technical notes, and highlights) are welcome for consideration. This Special Issue will address the following bullet-point topics: experimental studies of non-covalent interactions in inorganic chemical systems; theoretical modeling of supramolecular inorganic systems; application of machine learning and artificial intelligence in studies of supramolecular inorganic chemical systems; development of catalysts involving supramolecular inorganic chemical systems; databases of supramolecular inorganic chemical systems; analytical techniques for detection of non-covalent interactions in inorganic chemical systems. We welcome researchers to contribute their works to our Special Issue.

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. Inorganics 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 2700 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.
