Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The phrase “solvent-free synthesis” conjures up a wide variety of images and ideas amongst the chemistry community.  Solvent-free could refer to anything from a mixture of reagents combined without the addition of added solvent—i.e. simply running a reaction “neat”, to the increasingly broad area of chemistry often referred to as solid-state synthesis.  This synthetic approach is of particular interest in the modern world since it explores new ways to control the transformation of molecules without the necessity of employing large volumes of solvents, which often add to the cost and environmental impact of the reaction itself.  Additional benefits of this approach are often seen in higher product yields and lower energy costs associated with both the running of the reactions and the subsequent clean-up of product. Overall, this makes many of the reactions performed under solvent-free conditions also appeal to those of us interested in the field of Green Chemistry.

This Special Issue on Solvent-Free Synthesis will offer a forum to present papers focused on the synthesis of molecules using a variety of novel and environmentally-friendly strategies.  I hope that this issue will reflect the innovation and diversity of this growing field of chemistry.
