Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

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.
