Dear Friends and Colleagues
This themed issue of Chemistry is in honor of Professor Christoph Janiak on the occasion of his 60th birthday, and celebrates his innovative contributions to the fields of supramolecular chemistry, coordination polymers, networks and metal-organic frameworks, inorganic/organic hybrid materials and inorganic materials from ionic liquids.
Professor Janiak currently holds a Chair in Bioinorganic Chemistry and Catalysis at the Heinrich-Heine-University of Düsseldorf and his research interests span metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), coordination polymers, chirality, supramolecular interactions and metal nanoparticles in ionic liquids. Two of his seminal reviews have influenced many of us working in the fields of heterocyclic chemistry and coordination networks: "A critical account on π–π stacking in metal complexes with aromatic nitrogen-containing ligands" (Dalton Trans. 2000, 3885) and "Engineering coordination polymers towards applications" (Dalton Trans. 2003, 2781), which have been cited close to 6000 times.
I hope that this Special Issue will bring together a wide range of contributions to provide a fitting celebration of the fields of chemistry close to Christoph Janiak's heart, and will give the international inorganic and materials chemistry community an opportunity to celebrate with Christoph on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
Prof. Dr. Catherine Housecroft
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 papers will be 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. Chemistry is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1200 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.
