Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Since their discovery, poly(pyrazol-1-yl)borates have been considered as one of the most useful ligands in coordination and organometallic chemistry. Recent contributions in this area have not only led to a new understanding of their electronic and steric features, but also of the relevant applications of their metal complexes, such as enzyme models, biological properties, advanced materials, C–H activation, and polymerization. This Special Issue will summarize the evolution of scorpionates in the last ten years and will highlight the most important contributions to this mature class of chelating ligands.

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. Inorganics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1400 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.
