Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Radical reaction has been developed as one of the most powerful methods for constructing carbon–carbon and carbon–heteroatom bonds. Utilizing radical methodologies has advantages over ionic chemistry, for example due the high functional group tolerance and the mild reaction conditions, because neutral radical intermediates are not charged species. Therefore, the use of free radical-mediated reactions in organic synthesis has continued to increase, addressing new strategies for synthesising structurally complex molecules. The focus of this Special Issue is on presenting papers that cover the synthesis of single and new compounds based on radical reactions, electron transfer reactions or photo-induced redox reactions. Short communication papers on this topic are also welcome.

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.

2-(3,4-Dimethoxyphenyl)-N-(4-methoxyphenyl)-1-propyl-1H-benzo[d]imidazole-5-carboxamide was synthesized by the ‘one-pot’ reductive cyclization of N-(4-methoxyphenyl)-3-nitro-4-(propylamino)benzamide with 3,4-dimethoxybenzaldehyde, using sodium dithionite as a reductive cyclizing agent using DMSO as a solvent. The structure of newly synthesized compound was elucidated based on IR, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, and LC-MS data. Full article
