Interests: chemistry of azoles; chemistry of azines; heterocyclic tautomerism; NMR spectroscopy in structural elucidation; medicinal heterocyclic chemistry; chemistry of carbenoides
The pyrazole nucleus has been the core of the first synthetic drug molecule and is still a frequently-occurring motif in many biologically active compounds, including several pharmaceuticals currently on the market. Moreover, pyrazole derivatives have found numerous applications in agrochemicals, dyes, fluorescent materials, and more. Hence, there is ongoing interest in pyrazole chemistry also in recent times, what is reflected by a plethora of correspondent publications.
In this respect, researchers in the field are cordially invited to submit their manuscripts relevant to the synthesis of pyrazoles, pyrazolidines and pyrazolinones, their functionalization and their use in the construction of condensed systems for a Special Issue, ‘Pyrazole Derivatives’, within the journal Molecules. Moreover, contributions regarding spectroscopic data and tautomerism studies with appropriate pyrazole derivatives are welcome.

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.
