Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,


The 7th Heron Island Conference on Reactive Intermediates and Unusual Molecules—Synthesis and Mechanism—(Heron 7), organized by Curt Wentup and Craig Williams, will be held at Heron Island, Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia, 9–15 July 2016.

The Heron Island Conferences have acquired an excellent international reputation as high quality meetings covering a wide range of chemistry from synthesis and reaction mechanism to theory. We are sure this will be another scientifically and scenically outstanding event, and an excellent line-up of speakers from all over the world is already materializing. Early registration is advised, as the maximum number of attendees will be 100. For all details please see www.heron7.org, where the full list of presenters is available, including Charles Perrin, Herbert Mayr, Ken Houk, Peter Stang, John Gladysz, Neil Garg, Dean Tantillo, Huw Davies, Rainer Herges, Peter Schreiner, Don Tilley, Paul Chirik, Jay Siegel, Cameron Jones, David Lupton, Anna Gudmundsdottir, Manabu Abe, Kei Goto, and many more. The list will be updated from time to time.

Speakers in the conference are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Molecules.

Sincerely yours

Prof. Dr. Curt Wentrup
Guest Editor
