The field of organocatalysis has been experiencing an impressive growth in the last decade, and has attracted increasing the interest of researchers due to its broad spectrum of possibilities of activation. This growth has been reflected in the very large number of impressive results achieved with the development of new organocatalytic systems, as well as new and interesting applications. This amazing field of research covers different kind of organocatalysts, such as chiral secondary amines, thioureas, chiral phosphoric acids, squaramides, cinchona alkaloids, or phase transfer catalysts, as the more prominent ones. All of them provide efficient and environmentally friendly access to enantiomerically enriched compounds, including many drugs and bioactive natural products. In this Collection, we want to compile some of the last results reached in each family of organocatalysts by experts in the field.

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 collection 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.
