Special Issue Information

Dear Сolleagues,

In the post-COVID era, healthcare issues, environmental protection and infrastructural development are receiving increased attention from the global audience. Many international organizations, including the United Nations, the World Health Organization, the Pan American Health Organization and the European Environment Agency, in their roadmaps, emphasize a great need for advanced technologies aimed at increasing the quality of life. These initiatives are already reflected in the governmental strategies of several countries.

This special issue focuses on the recent advances in nanochemistry, nanotechnology and materials chemistry as well as on the development of new compounds and materials, including hybrid and composite materials, for electronics, healthcare and environmental protection.

Scholars are invited to share their studies and submit original papers (research articles and reviews), including (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • Nanochemistry solutions in advanced electronic technologies and devices: nanomaterials and hybrid materials for flexible and wearable electronics; semiconductor nanomaterials for sensing application; carbon nanomaterials for electronics and optoelectronics.
  • Diagnostics and treatment of socially significant diseases: advanced biocompatible materials and bioactive compounds for nanomedicine, targeted drug delivery; theranostics; bio-imaging; biosensors.
  • Advanced processes, materials and devices for environmental protection: green chemistry; electro-, photo- and thermocatalysts for water splitting, CO2 conversion, N2 electroreduction, H2 evolution, etc.; alternative energy (photovoltaics, hydrogen, etc.).

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.

Abstract
A new silver(I) cluster [Ag8L4(Py)(Pype)]·4Py·11H2O (I) with 3-benzyl-4-phenyl-1,2,4-triazol-5-thiol (L) was synthesized via the direct reaction of AgNO3 and L in MeOH, followed by recrystallization from a pyridine–piperidine mixture. The compound I was isolated in [...] Read more.
A new silver(I) cluster [Ag8L4(Py)(Pype)]·4Py·11H2O (I) with 3-benzyl-4-phenyl-1,2,4-triazol-5-thiol (L) was synthesized via the direct reaction of AgNO3 and L in MeOH, followed by recrystallization from a pyridine–piperidine mixture. The compound I was isolated in a monocrystal form and its crystal structure was determined via single crystal X-ray diffraction. The complex forms a “butterfly” cluster with triazol-5-thioles. The purity of the silver complex and its stability in the solution was confirmed via NMR analysis. Excitation and emission of the free ligand and its silver complex were studied at room temperature for solid samples. The in vitro biological activity of the free ligand and its complex was studied in relation to the non-pathogenic Mycolicibacterium smegmatis strain. Complexation of the free ligand with silver increases the biological activity of the former by almost twenty times. For the newly obtained silver cluster, a bactericidal effect was established.
