Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1969 was awarded jointly to Derek H. R. Barton and Odd Hassel "for their contributions to the development of the concept of conformation and its application in chemistry". Their work, which started already in the 1930’s, can be said to mark the transition from constitutional to conformational aspects of organic molecules and thereby paved the way to studies of dynamic stereochemistry. The later development of this field has been enormous and of immense importance for our understanding of a variety of phenomena, like rotation and inversion barriers or mechanisms of enantiomer interconversions in stereochemically labile compounds as well as other stereoselective interconversions of compounds exhibiting different types of chirality.
This Special Issue on Dynamic Stereochemistry is intended to attract researchers in this field who want to contribute their latest results to the forum of Molecules. It is my hope that a good deal of interesting papers will be submitted that will reflect the potential and rapid development in this important area of organic chemistry.

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).
