Interests: new syntheses of high value added molecules through catalytic assembly of simple units; innovative syntheses of heterocyclic molecules of pharmaceutical, agrochemical, or applicative interest; carbonylation chemistry; use of non-conventional solvents in organic synthesis; synthesis and semi-synthesis of bioactive compounds of pharmaceutical or agrochemical interest; synthesis of new materials for advanced applications; extraction, characterization, and evaluation of the biological activity of bioactive principles from natural matrices
This Special Issue is devoted to metal-catalyzed synthesis, which is of one of the most important tools in modern synthetic organic chemistry. In fact, under the catalytic action of a metal center, stabilized by suitable ligands, different small molecules can be sequentially activated to afford complex, high-value added compounds in one synthetic step. Although enormous progress has been made in this field during the last few decades, this kind of chemistry is still very attractive and important, and will continue to attract the interest of chemists, both in academia and industry around the world.

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 350 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.
