Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Organic optoelectronic materials play an irreplaceable role in many research fields, such as organic solar cells, organic photodetectors, organic light-emitting diode, photo/electrocatalysis and so on. Developing novel materials is the key issue to improve device performance and commercial progress. Organometallic materials hold great potential with the advantages of both organic and metallic materials. Organic segments provide wide space to adjust the molecular energy levels and bandgap, as well as solubility, crystallinity, and flexibility. Metallic segments involving cheap metal or heavy metal facilitate the improvement in molecular stability, molecular packing, the yield of triplet excitons and catalytic centers. Therefore, the research on highly efficient organometallic materials and their optoelectronic application would attract considerable attention around the world.

This Special Issue aims to cover recent development and trends of novel organometallic materials and their optoelectronic application. We seek full research articles, short communications, and reviews related, but not limited, to the topics listed below:

  • Design of novel metal complex;
  • Design of metallated photovoltaic small molecules and polymers;
  • Design of metallated catalysis materials;
  • Organic photovoltaics;
  • Non-fullerene organic solar cells;
  • Thick-film solar cell based on triplet materials;
  • Organic photodetectors;
  • Phosphorescent organic light-emitting diode;
  • Dynamic process of triplet exciton in optoelectronic device.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Dr. Miao Zhang
Guest Editor

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.
