Cross-coupling reactions are key steps in the synthesis of a number of bioactive molecules of interest in pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, cosmetics and more generally in fine chemicals. These reactions, including substitution of an aryl, vinyl or aklyl halide by nucleophile under transition metal catalysed procedures, have been the focus of many academic and industrial research groups leading to significant improvements during the last two decades. This special issue of Molecules dedicated to Cross-coupling Reactions calls for both fundamental and applied contributions in this field that remain a hot topic for both academics and industrials. Special attention will be paid to original contributions and feature articles reporting new or improved cross-coupling methodologies. Review papers are strongly encouraged, with special interests to those focusing on mechanistic aspects.

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.
