Boron, an important member of the main-group elements, plays an important role in modern chemistry and human life. Boron and its compounds are widely used in inorganic, organic and organometallic, and medicinal chemistry. Meanwhile, these systems have also stepped onto the stage of the materials industry from the role of basic science materials due to their unique and fascinating physico-chemical properties. The combination of state-of-the-art experimental and computational methods is contributing not only to a deep understanding of fundamental aspects in boron chemistry, but also paving the way for novel potential applications in distinct research fields and industries.
This Special Issue, “New Boron Chemistry: Current Advances and Future Prospects”, aims to focus on cutting-edge research related to boron chemistry. Specific topics include, but are not limited to, the development of novel synthetic methodologies, bonding analysis of boron compounds, cluster boron chemistry, structural elucidations, bonding analysis, as well as possible applications in all fields of boron chemistry. Manuscripts addressing other relevant and challenging problems are also strongly encouraged.
We cordially invite researchers working in this field to contribute original research articles, short communications, and critical review articles. Short papers on one compound will also be welcome in this Special Issue of Molecules.

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.
