Special Issue "New Insights in Photoredox Catalysis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 July 2019
Prof. Yasuharu Yoshimi
Photoredox catalysis is currently one of the most significant research topics in chemistry, because photoinduced electron transfer (PET) with organic substrates can provide unique processes for organic synthesis, polymer synthesis, modification of materials, fluorescence sensors, etc. In addition, the photochemical method represents a less toxic and milder process than conventional methods, because light is a clean and traceless reagent. Therefore, this Special Issue aims to illustrate the recent developments in the uses of photoinduced redox processes with organic molecules. The contributions will focus on a broad range of organic reactions by effective homogeneous and heterogeneous photoredox catalysts, as well as on their involvement in the polymer synthesis or modification of materials or fluorescence sensors.
Communications, full papers and reviews on the abovementioned topics are particularly 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. 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 1800 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.
