Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Organic synthesis is a powerful tool that allows researchers to express their scientific creativity. Its fundamental role in obtaining drugs and creating new materials is irrefutable evidence. However, a chemical process may often take a side route, generating novel unexplored products. The purpose of this Special Issue is to collect papers reporting on the synthesis and characterization of these compounds that could be useful building blocks for the whole scientific community.
