Much of our modern view of reactions in organometallic chemistry had its beginnings in studies involving organometallic manganese compounds. For instance, the migratory insertion reaction and M–M bonds were first systematically studies on manganese carbonyl complexes. However, organomanganese compounds faded into the background, while second and third-row transition metals took center stage. This of course was warranted because of their excellent catalytic properties, such as palladium cross coupling, olefin metathesis, and asymmetric hydrogenation, to name a few societally relevant organotransition metal catalyzed reactions. Until recently, organomanganese catalysts were limited to C–H bond functionalizations or niche applications. The metal–ligand cooperative paradigm, discovered and applied first in ruthenium-based hydrogenations, applied to Mn compounds has revitalized the field of organomanganese chemistry. This Special Issue on organomanganese chemistry emerges as part of this resurgence, but it is not limited to Mn(I) compounds that rely on metal–ligand cooperativity. The goal is to provide an open access resource for those exploring the exciting field of organometallic chemistry of the third-most abundant transition metal on Earth in all its forms that fit into the broadly defined class of organometallic chemistry.

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.
