Special Issue "Catalyzed Synthesis of Natural Products"
A special issue of Catalysts (ISSN 2073-4344).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2018
Natural products play pivotal roles not only in drug discovery, but in the transformation and synthesis of new material. The Organic Synthesis have been always next to natural products not only to corroborate their structure but too to obtain many derivatives in order to increase their activity and reduce secondary effects. In the last years, there has been a removed interest in doing the synthesis of natural products in a catalytic manner.This special issue collects original research papers, reviews and commentaries focused on the challenges for catalyzed synthesis of natural products. Submissions are welcome especially (but not exclusively) in the following areas:
Organocatalyzed synthesis of natural products;
Catalyzed synthesis of Natural Products with metals: this part could be divided into catalyzed by noble metals or first row metals;
Biocatalytic Synthesis of Natural Products: this part could be divided into using enzymes or using microorganisms.
