Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of Molecules "Domino Reactions" is devoted to outstanding research and review papers focused on new synthetic methodology employing domino or cascade processes. The central concept should entail a sequence of consecutive reactions resulting in the formation of several new bonds. It may include, but is not limited to, processes involving catalytic methods, photochemical activation, multicomponent reactions, or enantioselectivity. Research papers and reviews describing new examples of such reactions or their application in target-directed synthesis are welcome for this Special Issue of Molecules. We ask that authors contemplating submission of review papers make a pre-submission inquiry to the guest editor with a brief outline of the proposed coverage.

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).
