Special Issue "Organic Synthesis of Carbohydrates"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2019).
The major bottleneck in carbohydrate research is the limited availability of biologically important oligosaccharides. For the elucidation of their biological functions, efficient synthetic methodologies in oligosaccharide synthesis are necessary in this research field. Therefore, this Special Issue of Molbank focuses on “Organic Synthesis of Carbohydrates”. We encourage authors to submit short papers that cover the synthesis of novel carbohydrate-based compounds and improved preparation methods of mono- and disaccharide building blocks for oligosaccharide synthesis. The development of glycosylation methods and protecting groups for carbohydrates 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.
