In the last four decades, a great deal of organic reactions have been reported to be carried out under phase-transfer catalytic conditions (PTC). PTC has found applications in essentially all the fields of organic syntheses, industrial chemistry, biotechnology and material sciences. It can be encountered in the manufacture of advanced pharmaceuticals, pharmaceuticals, fragrances, crop protection chemicals, highly advanced engineering plastics, advanced materials for semiconductors and also electro-optical and data storage devices. It is intended that this special issue of "Molecules" will consider fundamentals of PTC, synthesis and modification organic compounds and polymers in the lab scale as well as industrial chemistry, biotechnology and material sciences. Previously unpublished experimental, theoretical, prospective, historical, and review papers are solicited on the following and related topics.

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.
