Palladium-catalyzed reactions are of vital importance in organic synthesis. Palladium catalysts have played a fundamental role in the development of a wide variety of transformations due to its versatility and high functional group tolerance. Indeed, palladium-catalyzed reactions are nowadays routinely employed as powerful synthetic tools both in academia and industry. Particularly interesting have resulted the advances in new catalyst development which has enable to perform difficult transformations with unactivated substrates using low catalyst loadings under mild and green reaction conditions.
This special issue will mainly focus on the latest advances and novel trends in the field of palladium catalysts ranging from the basic research and characterization studies to the development of highly active catalysts and their application in different redox processes, cross-coupling as well as C-H activation reactions.

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.
