Sulfur-nitrogen heteroarenes or hetarenes are cyclic compounds that obey Hückel’s 4n+2 π electron rule for aromaticity and contain, as ring members, at least one sulfur and one nitrogen atom. Hetarenes containing two or more heteroatoms are, in general, less well studied than the monoheteroatom systems (e.g., pyrrole, furan, thiophene, and pyridine). Nevertheless, they are steadily attracting more interest in biological and material sectors. Sulfur-nitrogen hetarenes are a particularly interesting category of mixed heteroatom hetarenes owing to the distinctly different physical properties of sulfur and nitrogen. Not surprisingly, many sulfur-nitrogen hetarene derivates are considered privileged structures by medicinal chemists. Thiazoles or isothiazoles now appear in top selling pharmaceuticals such as Dasatinib (anticancer), Ritonavir (HIV), Ziprasidone (antipsychotic), while 1,2,5-thiadiazole appears in Timolol (non-selective beta-adrenergic receptor antagonist) and its benzo- and pyrido-fused analogues are useful in various organic electronic applications. This Special Issue encourages authors to report new developments in all aspects of sulfur-nitrogen heteroaromatic chemistry.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
