Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that the second edition of the Special Issue "Molecules from Side Reactions" is launched, following the success of the first edition. This Special Issue aims to make available to the scientific community information on the side reactions and side products that inevitably take place during total or multistep syntheses. The submission of research articles covering all of the fields of organic chemistry is welcome. Due to the special nature of this topic, the reaction yields are not a key element in assessing the quality of the submitted research.
