Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In biological systems, the two enantiomers, in many cases, have a different response. Thus, most of the new drugs reaching the market today are single enantiomers, rather than the racemic mixtures. In addition, nonracemic molecules also contribute to the creation of advanced materials. The synthesis of chiral organic compounds in a highly enantioselective manner is therefore of great importance. In the earliest stages of development, the creation of the chiral center is made possible thanks to chiral substrate, auxiliary, or stoichiometric amounts of chiral reagents. Since the discovery of homogeneous catalytic asymmetric hydrogenation reactions, a variety of highly efficient catalytic asymmetric reactions have been developed so far and research in asymmetric catalysis achieved prominence in both academic and industrial laboratories. Although some of asymmetric catalyses have reached a high level of selectivity and efficiency, interest in further improvements continues to grow period. This special issue of Molecules will highlight all areas of current and future interest, reflecting the tremendous expansion in the scope of the asymmetric catalysis.

I strongly encourage authors to submit their work to this special issue of Molecules.

Submission

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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).
