Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Development of environmentally benign reactions has been the subject of intense current investigation. Toward the goal catalytic reactions with non-toxic reagents has been identified as one of the best procedures in organic synthesis. Currently, a large number of organic reactions have been studied using bismuth salts. As a result, many new compounds have been synthesized using different types of bismuth salts. Notably, most of the bismuth salts are inexpensive Lewis acid, non-toxic, and readily available reagents. In view of the rapidly expanding field of bismuth salts-mediated reactions and significant attention in this area from academic and industrial scientists, an issue of a journal on organobismuth mediated reactions would be necessary and timely. Molecules has selected this subject as a part of their endeavor to uncover new and useful reactions to the scientists working on organobismuth chemistry. The principal goal of this issue will be to provide pertinent information to researchers who are interested in the chemistry of organobismuth reagents and their fascinating role in organic synthesis. Synthesis of important organic compounds under environmentally benign conditions will also be explored. Efforts will be made to understand the mechanism of bismuth salts-mediated reactions in different solvents including in water.
