Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Various types of organic complexes are key structures in modern supramolecular chemistry and the chemistry of new materials. After isolation and full characterization and/or after generating in situ, a very rich family of organic complexes, especially organometallic complexes, is very often used in heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis. On the other hand, complexes showing biological activity are used in the pharmaceutical industry, which is currently obliged to thoroughly investigate the biological activity of enantiomeric forms of all chiral drugs before introducing them to the market. The main purpose of this Special Issue of Materials is to present a contemporary overview of the advances in the preparation, the structural determinations and the diverse applications of new organic complexes, broadly divided into the following groups:

  1. inclusion complexes;
  2. complexes of organometallic moieties with mono- and multifunctional nitrogen ligands;
  3. complexes of organometallic moieties with mono- and multifunctional phosphorus ligands;
  4. complexes of organometallic moieties with mono- and multifunctional chalcogen ligands;
  5. organic complexes based on interactions of the hydrogen bond type;
  6. organic complexes based on interactions of the halogen bond type;
  7. organic complexes based on interactions of the chalcogen bond type.

Therefore, all contributions dealing with the above-mentioned issues in the chemistry of organic complexes (from the fundamental aspects to applications in material chemistry, general and asymmetric synthesis and for physicochemical determinations) are warmly welcome.

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.
