Stereoselective synthesis, also known as asymmetric synthesis, is a very wide concept, that includes any form of synthesis using reactions in which at least one element of chirality is formed in a substrate molecule, producing stereoisomeric, either enantio- or diastereoisomeric products, in unequal amounts. This special issue of Molecules will consider any submissions associated with stereoselective syntheses in any form.

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.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs) and starting from 1 July 2012, it is 1600 CHF.
