Exactly one century ago, the discovery of the Claisen rearrangement opened the way to many approaches (of what? Towards what?) for the organic chemist. Nice extensions address stereochemical aspects, allowing prediction of the relative final arrangements, the influence of solvents, temperature and catalysts on the reaction behavior. Chirality transfers have proven to be fascinating and several examples in the field of synthesis of biologically active compounds have also been considered.
This Special Issue on Claisen Rearrangement will offer an attractive forum to present the different aspects of this marvellous reaction. I highly encourage authors to submit papers for this Special Issue, within the scope of Molecules. I hope that the topics presented will cover the enormous potential and demonstrate its widespread usefulness.

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.

Abstract: The Claisen rearrangement and other related sigmatropic rearrangements have become a powerful tool for the formation of carbon-carbon bonds. However, it requires typically the use of harsh reaction conditions to obtain full conversion. With the advent of microreactor technology, significant effort have been devoted to implement high temperature and high pressure processing in organic synthesis. In this mini review, we will give an overview of the recent advances of the Claisen rearrangement in micro flow.

Title: Recent Development of Reformatsky-Claisen Rearrangement

Abstract: The rearrangement of allyl a-bromoacetates with zinc dust was referred as the Reformatsky-Claisen rearrangement. The Ireland-Claisen rearrangement has been widely used in the synthesis of a diverse range of natural products, whereas several examples of zinc-mediated Reformatsky-Claisen rearrangement have been utilized so far. In this article, we will give an overview of the recent advances of Reformatsky-Claisen rearrangement as well as our recent development of indium-mediated Reformatsky-Claisen rearrangement.
