Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is a continuation of the previous Special Issue “New Advances in Chemoenzymatic Synthesis”.

Chemoenzymatic strategies for the synthesis of complex molecules have recently enriched the field of organic chemistry.

Currently, various examples of the development of chemoenzymatic processes have been described, which have successfully replaced existing chemical processes thanks to the integrated approach of biocatalysis and traditional chemical synthesis. Biocatalysis has been used for laboratory-scale and industrial production in order to obtain synthetic pathways characterized by fewer steps, less waste and efficient global synthesis in terms of yields, regio- and stereoselectivity, process robustness and safety. Under this paradigm, enzyme-catalyzed reactions and the flexibility of chemical derivatization are powerful tools for streamlining access to relevant bioactive molecules.

This Special Issue covers all aspects of the current applications of chemoenzymatic routes in the synthesis of organic compounds (pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, food additives, flavors, fragrances) at both the laboratory and industrial scales.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Catalysts 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 2700 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.
