Special Issue "Hypervalent Iodine Chemistry"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 February 2017).
Interests: organic chemistry; catalysis; iodine; electrochemical synthesis; heterocycles; reaction mechanisms
Interests: hypervalent iodine chemistry; transition metal-catalysed reactions; synthetic methodology; drug development; computational chemistry
Hypervalent iodine chemistry has matured over several decades, with many transformations mediated by hypervalent iodine compounds now being commonplace in synthesis. In particular, the ability to use these species in place of expensive or toxic metal salts is appealing. They have been used as stoichiometric oxidants, as functional group transfer agents, and as sources of radicals and carbenes. Recent advances include the development of enantioselective processes with chiral hypervalent iodine compounds and the realisation of catalytic reactions with in situ generated hypervalent iodine species.
This Special Issue will focus on the latest developments in hypervalent iodine chemistry in all areas of synthesis.

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.
