We are pleased to announce an upcoming themed issue on post-synthetic modification of coordination networks, guest edited by Andy Burrows and Seth Cohen. It is our pleasure to invite you to contribute to this themed issue.
Post-synthetic modification is becoming an increasingly important technique in preparing functional network structures. This Themed Issue will highlight the current status of this rapidly growing and evolving area, as well as mapping out future directions. When considering articles for this themed issue, the terms ‘post-synthetic modification’ and ‘coordination network’ will be taken in their broadest senses, so while postsynthetic modifications can involve covalent bond forming and breaking, they can alternatively refer to making or breaking coordination bonds or other framework changes. Coordination networks can include any extended structure based on coordination bonds, including coordination polymers and metal-organic frameworks.
How to submit?
All types of manuscript, Communications, Full Papers and Highlights, will be considered for publication. We aim to publish this themed issue in the second half of 2012 and therefore would like to receive manuscripts by 31st January 2012. The manuscript should be prepared according to the format for regular articles and should be submitted via our online system. All invited manuscripts will be subject to the normal refereeing procedure.
