Special Issue "Heterocycles"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2017).
Interests: new synthetic methodology; heterocycles; antibacterial agents; anticancer agents; medicinal chemistry
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Topical Collection in Molecules: Heterocyclic Compounds
Special Issue in Molecules: Recent Advances in Organic Synthetic Methods
Heterocycles are ubiquitous building blocks in natural and unnatural medicinal compounds and functional materials. The focus of this Special Issue is to present short papers describing novel synthetic approaches to heterocyclic structures of value in these areas. Efficient procedures to access ring systems containing one or more heteroatoms (particularly, N, O and S, as well as others) are welcome. Contributions should be written as single-compound preparations and should target new compounds of high value. Previously-described structures will only be considered if they have proven value and if a significant improvement has been made in the synthetic approach. Sufficient experimental details should be included to facilitate other researchers in accessing each compound and characterization data should be included.

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. Molbank is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 500 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.
