This Special Issue of Chemistry is dedicated to Professor Josef Michl, a pioneer in several theoretical and experimental fields of chemistry. After obtaining a Ph.D. degree at Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czechoslovakia, in 1965 and working as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Houston and the University of Texas at Austin, he was associated with several institutions, including the Aarhus University, the University of Utah, and the University of Texas at Austin. Currently, he works at the University of Colorado Boulder, USA, and the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry at the Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czech Republic. He has made significant contributions to many fields of theoretical and experimental organic chemistry, such as organic photochemistry, chemistry of biradicals and biradicaloids, electronic and vibrational spectroscopy, silicon and boron chemistry, reactive intermediates, and magnetic circular dichroism.
This Special Issue will have a broad focus on mechanistic aspects of organic/inorganic chemistry, including photochemistry; reactive intermediates; molecular rotors; fluorine, silicon, and boron chemistry; organometallics; and some others.Prof. Dr. Igor Alabugin

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.
