About Molbank


  • Molbank is a communication journal of synthetic chemistry and natural product chemistry. It publishes “short notes” of experimental data records for individual molecules (one compound per paper) as well as “communications” of preliminary but significant results. For the former article type (“short notes”), any scattered unassembled experimental data for individual compounds which is conventionally not publishable is particularly welcome. Availability of compound samples is published and considered as important information. Authors are encouraged to register or deposit their chemical samples through the non-profit international organization Molecular Diversity Preservation International (MDPI).
  • Molbank has been launched to preserve and exploit molecular diversity of both chemical information and chemical substances.


  • organic synthesis
  • biosynthesis
  • natural product isolation and derivatization
  • structural elucidation (X-ray crystallography, NMR, etc.)
