Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As a result of the extremely wide range of structural diversity associated with versatile synthetic accessibility and reactivity, heterocyclic and organometallic compounds, as well as their hybrid combinations are of pronounced interest in many research areas, extending our basic knowledge in chemistry and providing an extremely wide scope of results that find application in everyday life. Heterocycles and organometallics are extensively used, for example, as pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, dyes, sensors and selectors, antioxidants, corrosion inhibitors, chiral pools, catalysts, and ligands. Emblematic bioactive natural products, for example, antibiotics (such as penicillin and cephalosporin) and alkaloids (such as vinblastine, morphine, reserpine, and so on), incorporate heterocyclic skeletons. Heterocyclic and organometallic chemistry can be regarded as partly overlapping large domains of chemical research, practically comprising not only a plethora of well-established synthetic methods, structure–reactivity correlations, and structural analyses supported by theoretical modelling studies, but an infinite range of intriguing, unrefined, and, consequently, underexplored approaches and methodologies associated with challenging unsolved synthetic and structural problems.

This Special Issue aims to collect original contributions or mini-reviews on the topics covering synthesis, application, structural elucidation, and theoretical modelling studies analyzing reactivity, with special attention to the catalytic activity of heterocyclic and organometallic compounds. There is no restriction on the length of the papers.

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.
