Special Issue "Organometallic Catalysis for Olefin Polymerization/Oligomerization"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 August 2017
We are calling for great contributions for the Special Issue, “Organometallic Catalysis for Olefin Polymerization/Oligomerization. The issue will cover the following topics: (i) synthesis of metal complex catalysts for olefin polymerization/oligomerization; (ii) metal catalyzed polymerizations; (iii) organometallic reactions related to efficient carbon–carbon bond formation; and (iv) synthesis of functional materials (polymers) by olefin polymerization and efficient carbon–carbon bond formation. It is clear that the design of molecular catalysis plays a very important role for synthesis of functional materials by precise olefin polymerization and efficient C–C bond formation. For example, metal catalyzed olefin coordination/insertion polymerization is a core technology in chemical industry, and olefin metathesis is an important reaction for synthesis of fine chemicals and advanced materials (polymers).
I hope this topic is of interest to you as we are taking the opportunity to look at recent developments as well as exploring the future scope in this field.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
