Peptides are versatile biological molecules with a wide range of potential applications. Recent developments in peptide synthesis have enabled the preparation of both naturally occurring and novel peptidic structures of great complexity. This has led to the expanded use of peptides and peptidomimetics in drug development as well as growing interest in the development of peptide-based materials to underpin cutting edge technologies.
Research articles covering all areas of peptide chemistry from peptide synthesis and chemical ligation; isolation and characterization of new peptidic natural products through to biological and medicinal applications; the study of peptide self-assembly and the development of novel peptide-based materials are welcomed for inclusion in this special issue for Molecules.

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.
