Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Marine natural products have played an important role in the development of new bioactive compounds with a variety of interesting properties (antiviral, cytotoxic, antitumor, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and others). Within the molecules produced by these marine organisms, the presence of heterocyclic sub-units is quite frequent. The structural diversity of this group of marine compounds, together with their diverse biological activities, has attracted the attention of the scientific community. Following the success of the Special Issue “Heterocyclic Compounds from Marine Organisms, https://www.mdpi.com/journal/marinedrugs/special_issues/Heterocyclic_Marine”, we are delighted to edit the second Special Issue on this topical area. This Special Issue on "Heterocyclic Compounds from Marine Organisms 2.0" aims to provide an overview of the most recent developments related to the isolation, characterization, synthesis, or biosynthesis of marine compounds containing heterocyclic units or structural-related analogs.

As Guest Editor, I cordially invite contributions in the form of original research articles or reviews from this exciting research field.

Prof. Dr. Asunción Barbero
Guest Editor

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. Marine Drugs 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 2900 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.

Coumarin and its derivatives have significantly attracted the attention of medicinal chemists and chemical biologists due to their huge range of biological, and in particular, pharmacological properties. Interesting families of coumarins have been found from marine sources, which has accelerated the drug discovery process by inspiring innovation or even by the identification of analogues with remarkable biological properties. The purpose of this review is to showcase the most interesting marine-derived coumarins from a medicinal chemistry point of view, as well as the novel and useful synthetic routes described to date to achieve these chemical structures. The references that compose this overview were collected from PubMed, Mendeley and SciFinder. Full article
