Coordination chemistry is a wide branch of inorganic chemistry. In the design of coordination compounds, several crucial points should be considered for successful synthesis of the target molecule. These include the electronic nature of the central metal ion, its oxidation state, the kind of inorganic salt used, the skeletal nature of the coordinating ligands and donor atoms, the steric effect which may or may not be encountered in the ligands’ structures and the nature of other anions in solutions which may have a tendency to assemble and link metal centers to form polynuclear species and/or coordination polymers. However, still the most important issue in the design of coordination compounds is their utility and/or potential applications. Therefore, the fascinating chemical, topological and physical properties of the coordination compounds have made them the central focus of extensive research in chemistry and in the multidisciplinary fields. The applications of these compounds extend to many aspects of life science and medical fields (pharmaceutical drugs, anticancer agents, electron transfer reactions, models to mimic biological molecules, metalloproteins, oxygen carrier molecules, MRI), material sciences (coordination polymers, sensors, MOFs, nanoparticles, molecular electronics, electrical conductivity, luminescence emission spectroscopy), industry (metallurgy, homogeneous catalysis, polymerization, pigments) and molecular magnetism (magnetic properties of coordination compounds in general, SMMs, SIMs, spin crossover). In addition to the traditional physicochemical methods used for characterization of the synthesized coordination compounds, some methods depend on the electronic nature of the central metal ion, such as magnetism. Following all of the above, we invite investigators to submit papers to this Special Issue entitled "Characterization of Coordination Compounds” in Magnetochemistry. This Special Issue is devoted to the synthesis and characterization of this class of compounds, where the magnetic properties are used as one of the structural analysis techniques.
