Special Issue "Synthesis and Molecular Recognition of Macrocyclic Compounds"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2022) | Viewed by 21550
The molecular recognition of biomolecules is a ubiquitous and vital phenomenon in nature. This phenomenon can also be engineered into synthetic molecules such as macrocycles.
Studies on molecular recognition using macrocycles such as crown ethers, cryptands, calixarenes, cyclodextrin derivatives, spherands, cavitands, cyclophanes, cucurbiturils, catenanes, rotaxanes, and many others are not only important because they help us to better understand its working in nature, but also because these studies can lead to the development of effective sensor and selector molecules and catalysts with wide applications.
This Special Issue focuses on the synthesis and molecular recognition of macrocycles and their applications as sensors, selectors, and catalysts.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2700 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.
