The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) definition of a heterocycle requires a cyclic compound to contain at least two different elements as members of its ring(s). From the perspective of organic heterocycles, one of these elements must be carbon while the other is typically nitrogen, oxygen or sulfur. Common organic heterocycles contain either one or two heteroatoms, and many of these compounds have important commercial applications, as well as being important for many biological processes.
Less common heterocycles are those that contain either many heteroatoms, or a greater variety of heteroatoms. Increasing the atomic weight of the heteroatom also leads to less well known and less studied heterocycles. These heteroatom rich and often more complex heterocycles constitute an underexplored and underexploited area in the chemical sciences. The constant effort being made to increase structural diversity and to find new privileged structures in the biological and materials sciences can, therefore, only benefit from increased efforts to explore the area of rare heterocycles. This Special Issue encourages authors to report new developments in all aspects of heteroatom rich organic heterocycles, irrespective of ring size, that contain at least two different elements other than carbon and at least three heteroatoms within the heterocycles ring system.Prof. Dr. Panayiotis A.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molbank is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
