Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A challenging area in chemistry is the development of reactions allowing atom and step efficiency to access new synthetic structures. A particularly promising strategy is to trigger domino reactions that convert simple starting materials into highly sophisticated targets by creating several bonds in a one-pot operation. Moreover, the use of transition in metal-catalyzed transformations as part of a domino process favors highly selective reactions due to the preorganization of the reactive intermediates around the metallic center. The present Special Issue intends to highlight updated contributions involving metal-catalyzed domino reactions. Communications, full papers, and reviews by experts in the field are 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.
