This Special Issue aims to capture the newest developments in organometallic photochemistry. Submit your manuscript by December 1, 2023.

Photochemistry is a longstanding powerful strategy for increasing the efficiency and selectivity of novel transformations in chemical synthesis, probing the properties of compounds, and developing new applications with societal benefits. Much work remains in developing photocatalysts with higher stability, activity, and performance, including exploring diverse metals and metal–ligand combinations, as well as novel chromophores. To capture the newest developments, Organometallics is publishing a Special Issue “Shining light on Organometallic Chemistry: Synthesis, Mechanisms, and Applications Driven by Photochemistry.”

To make the relevance to organometallic photochemistry and photophysical topics clear, submitted manuscripts should ideally feature one of the following attributes:

  • A new organometallic photochemistry synthetic methodology to prepare organic compounds.
  • A novel organometallic photochemistry mechanism

Submit your manuscript by December 1, 2023.
