Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Chemoselective ligations are undoubtedly the methods of choice for the synthesis of well-defined and complex biomacromolecular systems, based on peptides, carbohydrates, and/or oligonucleotides. This Special Issue will be dedicated to recent advances in this field, and will also have a special focus on biological applications of the resulting structures.

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.
