Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is focused on metal complexes and their synthesis, modeling, and physico-chemical and biological characterization. As metal complexes play a significant role in various scientific fields such as biology, chemistry, and materials science, a better understanding of their characteristics can contribute to the creation of novel materials, catalytic systems, and therapeutic agents. In biological studies, metal complexes can exhibit unique and valuable properties that make them suitable for a range of biomedical applications, such as drug development, imaging, and therapeutic agents.

The synthesis of metal complexes involves the combination of metal ions with ligands, which can be organic molecules or inorganic species. A wide range of metal complex structures can be generated using various synthetic approaches such as organometallic chemistry and coordination chemistry.

Quantum mechanics and computational chemistry as modeling techniques promote an understanding of electronic and structural properties as well as provide insights into the spectroscopic features, bonding nature, and catalytic activity of metal complexes.

Physico-chemical characterization techniques of metal complexes include X-ray crystallography, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, UV/Vis spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analysis and mass spectrometry and others. These analyses are utilized to determine the stability, structure, and reactivity of these materials.

The aim of this Special Issue is to publish outstanding papers that cover the latest progress in the field of metal complexes. Submissions of original research articles, reviews, and short communications related to the subject are welcome.

Dr. Monika Kalinowska
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
