Special Issue "Recent Synthetic Aspects on the Chemistry of Nitro, Nitroso and Amino Compounds"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 June 2016)
Prof. Alessandro Palmieri
Nitrogen-containing molecules are largely present in our daily life, being at very core of many substances acting as pharmeceuticals, fertilizers, explosives, proteins, etc. Among them, nitro, nitroso, and amino derivatives, thanks to their great chemical versatility, play a prominent role in synthesis and are largely investigated as precursors of highly functionalized materials, and as catalysts or ligands, respectively, in organo- and metal-catalyzed processes. Each class of these derivatives is featured by a different oxidation state of the nitrogen atom, which, in principle, would enable their interconversion through a redox process. The nitrogen atom can be easily inserted into organic molecules in its higher oxidation state as a nitro group from which nitroso or amino derivatives can be obtained by a reductive process. On the other hand, modern synthetic methods allow a direct introduction of the amino moiety through reductive or electrophilic amination.
With this Special Issue, we intend to highlight the latest important results concerning the chemistry of these key derivatives, discussing new emerging protocols for their preparation and their applications for new carbon-carbon (C–C) and carbon-heteroatom (C–X) bond formation.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
