Symmetry invites manuscripts for the Special Issue on Asymmetric Catalysis, a field of central importance for the production of enantiomerically pure chiral drugs, natural products, and important molecules for materials chemistry. This issue is devoted to the recent aspects of asymmetric organo- and metal-catalysis, combination of organocatalysis with metal- and/or bio-catalysis.
Both original research papers and reviews dealing with the design, synthesis and use of new enantioselective catalytic systems that promote the formation of versatile chiral building-blocks, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, flavors, biologically active molecules, and materials will be considered.

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. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
