Spirocompounds can be defined as cyclic molecules containing at least two rings joined together by a single atom. This unique structural feature has been observed in natural products and has also been the target of methodological studies and syntheses. This special issue of Molecules is aimed at all aspects of spirocompounds. Submissions dealing with new methods of spiroannulation, the use of spirocompounds as intermediates in synthesis, and the isolation/characterization of new natural products are particularly welcomed. Any submission dealing with other aspects of spirocompounds will also be considered.
