Cycloaddition reactions provide rapid access to natural and unnatural compounds of medicinal interest or intermediates useful for functional materials. In general, cycloadditions represent an efficient entry to ring systems and require readily available starting materials. In addition, many cycloaddition reactions tolerate a wide variety of functional groups. The focus of this special issue is to present papers that cover both fundamental and applied contributions in this field. Special attention will be paid to the development of new methodologies, mechanistic analysis of existing methodologies, and applications of cycloaddition reactions toward the synthesis of pharmalogically or industrially relevant materials.

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.
