Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The intensive research work in the field of luminescent materials with lanthanides, resulting in a large number of articles published on the subject, shows that the interest in these materials is far from exhausted. This is due to the remarkable properties and fascinating applications of these materials. Optical telecommunications, luminescent displays, and white LEDs, as well as various biomedical applications, are just a few to be mentioned. This Special Issue aims to demonstrate the recent trends in the research on luminescent materials based on lanthanides. The synthesis, properties, and applications of these materials, as well as fundamental studies and design, are a matter of importance.

The scope of the Special Issue is rather wide-ranging, covering both lanthanide complexes, and organic, inorganic, and organic-inorganic hybrid materials with advanced luminescent properties. The scientific community, researchers, and experts are challenged and highly welcome to present both original papers and short communications, as well as reviews, in this Special Issue.

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.
