Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Microwave-mediated chemistry continues to have an impact on chemical synthesis, scale-up, medicinal chemistry, catalysis, material science and many other areas of science. Often, yields are improved and processes can be carried out in minutes compared to their thermal counterparts. Many processes can be carried out in batches or can be solvent-free.

It is a great pleasure to invite you to participate in show-casing your work in microwave-mediated chemistry.

Prof. Dr. John Spencer
Guest Editor

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).
