Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Polyheteroatom molecular systems are of paramount importance for the preparation of novel organic and metal–organic functional materials and pharmacologically active substances. In this sense, the synthesis and reactivity of various polyheteroatom heterocycles enriched with nitrogen and oxygen atoms have received special research attention. In addition, structurally diverse acyclic polyheteroatom compounds (e.g., azides and nitro compounds) are considered to be useful precursors for the construction of valuable heterocycles or may serve as standalone organic ligands, components of organic functional and/or energetic materials, or be relevant in medicinal chemistry. This Special Issue plans to provide an overview of the most recent advances in the synthesis and reactivity of polynitrogen and nitrogen–oxygen molecular systems and their applications in diverse areas.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • the synthesis and reactivity of polynitrogen and nitrogen–oxygen heterocycles;
  • organic azides and click reactions; nitro compounds;
  • mesoionic and zwitter-ionic compounds;
  • polynitrogen and nitrogen–oxygen organic ligands;
  • organic and metal–organic functional materials;
  • pharmacologically active substances.

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 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
