Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As novel aromatic compounds and related π-electron systems have expanded their application in the field of organic electronics (such as semiconductors, liquid crystals, OLED, etc.) and medicinal chemistry, the establishment of synthetic methods and the elucidation of the reactivity and properties of these derivatives are becoming increasingly important in recent years.

The Special Issue entitled "Synthesis and Reactivity of Novel Aromatic Compounds" will provide a platform for researchers to represent new findings and innovative ideas on the advanced synthesis, reactivity, and applications of novel aromatic compounds and related π-electron systems.

This Special Issue welcomes the submission of original research papers or comprehensive reviews that demonstrate or summarize significant advances in the novel aromatic compounds and related π-electron systems in terms of the synthesis, reactivity, properties, and application to functional materials, as well as the bio- and pharmaco-logical activities.

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. 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.
