Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
We are pleased to announce the new Special Issue entitled “Exclusive Feature Papers on Molecular Structure”. This is a collection of important high-quality papers (original research articles or comprehensive reviews) published in open access format by Editorial Board Members or prominent scholars invited by the Editorial Office and the Guest Editors. We aim to gather state-of-the-art or new cutting-edge developments that cover all kinds of topics in the physical chemistry field through selected works, in the hope of making a great contribution to the community. We intend for this Special Issue to serve as a forum for disseminating excellent research findings, as well as sharing innovative ideas in the field.

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.
The below list represents only planned manuscripts. Some of these manuscripts have not been received by the Editorial Office yet. Papers submitted to MDPI journals are subject to peer-review.
Title: Five and Six-Coordinated Zinc Isomers in the Heterometallic Cyclic Molecular Tetramer

Abstract: The manuscript describes the synthesis of two heterometallic Li-Zn isomers. Both structures are cyclic tetranuclear molecules that differ by coordination number of Zn ions, which are either 5- or 6-coordinated. X-ray structural analysis, powder diffraction pattern, multinuclear NMR, IR, mass-spectrometry, and TGA have been used for characterization of two isomers. The transformation in different solvents from 5- to 6-coordinated Zn species and vice-versa is also described.
