Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since Otto Diels and Kurt Alder first showed the power of cycloadditions, this area of chemistry has been in constant development. Cycloadditions over the past eight decades have proved to be a powerful tool for the synthetic chemist, allowing two or more bond constructions and the formation of multiple stereogenic centres in a single step, often with exquisite control of regiochemistry and stereochemistry. This Special Issue aims to highlight the most recent advances in the area of cycloaddition chemistry, from the areas of total synthesis, screening compound synthesis, asymmetric synthesis, heterocyclic chemistry, materials synthesis and bioconjugation.

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).
