Special Issue "N-Heterocycles: Synthesis, Functionalization, Electrochemical, Spectroscopic Characterization and Mechanistic Investigation"
A special issue of Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: Synthetic Organic Chemistry; Heterocyclic Chemistry; Density Functional Theory
N-Heterocycles are a component of some of the most important compounds found, with broad applications in pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries. They are widely seen in a number of natural products and have attracted considerable attention due to their biological activities, such as antimalarial, antifungal, antibacterial, antiasthmatic, antihypertensive, anti-inflammatory, and trichomonal activities. They are also important synthetic intermediates in preparing a variety of biologically active compounds. Many of these compounds are ligands in coordination chemistry, acting as an N atom donor for chelating with metals, such as in ruthenium metalloantimalarials, and are used for the identification of metals and in homogenous catalysis. They have been found applications in supramolecular chemistry, luminescent sensors, and photosensitizers for solar cells.
The well-known streptonigrin (also known as rufochromomycin and bruneomycin), lavendamycin, and other similar compounds possess an N-heterocycle subunit.
This Special Issue welcomes the submission of papers based on original research, or reviews that describe the innovative sustainable organic reactions and methodologies of nitrogen heterocycles, their functionalization, and applications, ranging from novel synthetic transformations to the design and development of new materials.

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.
