Indole moieties represent important scaffolds in drug discovery. Indoles and their derivatives are natural and synthetic molecules which have useful biological properties such as antimicrobial, antiviral, antitubercular, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antidiabetic, anticonvulsant, antimicrobial, antioxidant, antidepresent, and anticonvulsant activities.
This Special Issue is dedicated to “The Biomedical Importance of Indoles and Their Derivatives" and will focus on indoles and derivatives that are potentially useful as lead compounds for the development of new bioactive compounds. As the Guest Editors, we invite scientists in the fields of medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, and toxicology to present their recent advances in the drug discovery, isolation, synthesis, biosynthesis, structural elucidation, bioactivity evaluation and mode of action of indoles and their derivatives.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1800 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.
