Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The chemistry and use of closed-shell organic molecules is well developed. In contrast, the usually high reactivity and transient nature of open-shell organic radicals has hampered the development of their chemistry and applications. During the last years, a particular type of radicals, the trityl radicals, have attracted a lot of attention. Their parent compound is the Gomberg radical, which can be derivatized in several ways and thereby tailored with respect to the envisioned application. These applications include the use of the derivatives as Molecular Magnets and Spin Labels, as well as in Spintronics, Dynamic Nuclear Polarization, Imaging, Sensoring, and EPR-based Distance Measurements in vitro, within cells, and at room temperature. The aim of this Special Issue is to cover all these facets of the trityl radicals, thereby giving the reader the opportunity to obtain an overview of the field within one journal issue. For the authors, this Special Issue represents an opportunity to make their research in this field more visible.
This Special Issue will contain contributions discussing all the aspects broadly indicated by the keywords. Review articles by experts in the field will also be welcome.

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.
