In the past decade, there has been an explosion of research developments in the broad area of quantum and topological materials. The discoveries of topological materials and atomically thin two-dimensional (2D) magnetic materials are two remarkable examples. One of the most striking properties of emerging quantum/topological materials is their transport properties, where the intricate quantum/topological properties of electrons in the material lead to novel electronic states or phenomena (e.g., topological surface/edge states, correlated insulator to superconductor transition). Since electrons carry electric charge as well as spin angular momentum, quantum or topological materials often host interesting magnetotransport properties due to the coupling between charge, spin, and band topology (high linear magnetoresistance, anomalous quantum Hall, chiral-anomaly-induced negative magnetoresistance, etc.). These novel quantum effects may be exploited in future electronic, memory, or computing devices with high performance and low dissipation. This Special Issue reviews the current status and future perspectives of different quantum/topological materials (in either bulk, thin film, or nanostructure form) and devices with a focus on the electronic and spin transport properties.

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. Magnetochemistry 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.
