Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Complexes of metals with N-base ligands like ammonia, amines, urea derivatives, or N-heterocycles are a highly important class of compounds in chemistry, biochemistry, and material science. Many enzymes comprise these kinds of metal complexes. Coordination chemistry of metal complexes with N-bases, including structural features and ligand–central atom or ligand–anion interactions in the solid or solution phase, offers facile routes to prepare and study such industrially important materials. For instance, the interaction of oxidizing anions with reducing N-base ligands within these complex compounds can result in mixed oxides in nanometric size that can be used as catalysts in various technologically important reactions such as CO2 reduction, Fischer–Tropsch synthesis, CO oxidation, etc.   

This Special Issue of Inorganics highlights the chemistry of metal complexes containing N-base ligands (ammonia, amines, urea and pyridine, or other N- heterocycle derivatives) and their relevance to science and industry.

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 1600 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.
