Sustainable development is the new goal of modern society, for achieving “a healthy and productive life in harmony with Nature”. Chemistry plays a pivotal role in maintaining and improving our quality of life, the competitiveness of the chemical industry, and the natural environment. Starting from this, the twelve principles of green chemistry serve as excellent guidance when considering the environmental impact of any chemistry. Among them, the integration of green chemistry and engineering principles into the pharmaceutical industry is encouraged. With this aim, a wider pool of clean technologies could be customized for the synthesis of key molecules with biological activity. This Special Issue welcomes original research on the development of ecofriendly processes useful not only for organic synthesis but especially for medicinal chemistry. The scope is broad and includes (1) the use of renewable feedstocks, (2) the employment of alternative energy sources, (3) the use of non-toxic solvents, (4) catalysis, and (5) hazard reduction and waste minimization

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 2000 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.
