Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

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.
