Special Issue "Enantioselective Catalysis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2018)
Prof. Dr. Antonio Massa
Asymmetric Catalysis is one of the most powerful methods for the achievement of optically-active organic compounds, entities with a central role in synthetic, medicinal and material chemistry. Given the continuous advancements in this area and, as a consequence, the new challenges to be faced, a focus on this matter is highly desirable. The main aim of this Special Issue is to highlight strategies, methodologies and techniques recently implemented to promote chiral induction. Original research papers and reviews encompassing the various aspects of asymmetric catalysis, such as the designing of tailored catalysts, development of new catalytic systems, synthetic applications and mechanistic studies dealing with stereo-controlled catalytic reactions 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 monthly 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.
