Functional organic dyes and pigments are organic materials with a specific function that absorb or emit a specific wavelength. In general, organic dyes and pigments are classified according to their solubility in the medium in which they are applied; that is, dyes are soluble and pigments are insoluble. Although the physical properties of dyes and pigments are different, the chemical structures of their chromophores are generally similar.
Organic dyes and pigments have been industrially applied for as colorants in coatings, textiles, plastics, any many more. Recently, functional organic dyes and pigments have demonstrated differences in the function as well as purpose of coloring, such as in the context of electrically, emission-, and stimulus-responsive properties, depending on the application. Moreover, with recent industrial development, the application range of organic and dyes has been considerably diversified via their π-conjugation systems and special properties such as, for example, through their electrical properties in solar cells, OLEDs, OTFTs, and electrical sensors; special wavelength absorption/emission, such as in UV stabilizers, NIR absorption/emission materials, colorants for LCD and image sensor color filters; and stimulus-responsive color change for physical/chemical sensing.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to highlight materials, measurement methods, and applications broadly related to “Functional Organic Dyes and Pigments”.

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. 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.
