Recent years, a number of new methods for synthesis of complex molecules, short and efficient routes for synthesis of important substance have been published. The speed of this development is now enormously increasing. This special issue, jointly published in “Challenges” and “Molecules”, is dedicated to the publication of the latest “Challenges in Synthetic Chemistry”, which includes research results in the field of stereoselective synthesis, enantioselctive synthesis, organometalic chemistry, heterocyclic chemistry, and total synthesis of natural products. We will consider any submissions associated with synthetic chemistry (including but not limited to: biological, theoretical and mechanistic studies). However, the primary focus of this special issue is related to the development of challenging synthetic methodology and its applications.
