Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Halogens constitute an important class of substituents in a variety of organic and inorganic compounds, and often play a crucial role in chemical transformations, and in the formation of halogen bonding, which induces new physicochemical properties. They are essential functional groups in many polymers, materials of special properties, agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals. Hence, an increasing and intense interest in the development of this area of research is observed not only in the published chemistry articles, but also in numerous patents. The importance of halogens will undoubtedly be illustrated by the presentations at the 10th International Meeting on Halogen Chemistry (Halchem-X), which will be held at the University of Łódź, Poland, September 5–8, 2022, and follows the 20 year-old tradition of the symposia, which are dedicated to this area.

This Thematic Issue of Molecules, entitled Recent Advances in the Chemistry of Halogens, aims to present the latest works in the research and development in the field of organic and inorganic halogen chemistry. The articles published in this Special Issue will cover various topics, including: halogen-containing substrates in modern organic synthesis, halogenated compounds in polymer and materials chemistry, halogens in medicinally relevant and naturally occurring compounds, halogen-mediated reaction mechanisms, halogen bonding: structural aspects with theoretical calculations, as well as the crystallography and crystal engineering of halogen-containing compounds. We hereby invite and encourage all conference participants and all researchers working with halogen-containing compounds to submit their papers for publication in this Thematic Issue of Molecules; original publications, research communications, and review articles are welcome.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Materials.

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. Molecules 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 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.
