Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Indoles continue to generate new chemistry as a result of their potential for reactivity, and also for their central role in biological chemistry through the involvement of tryptophan. This Special Issue therefore seeks to cover a broad scope of interests that include new reactivity patterns, new methods for indole transformations, the synthesis of indoles with additional fused rings, new synthetic routes to the indole framework, indole metal complexes, and aspects of medicinal chemistry incorporating indole systems. The aim of the Special Issue is to be inclusive and especially to encourage new and unusual features of indole chemistry.

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.
