Special Issue "Nucleosides and Nucleotides"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Nucleosides and nucleotides continue to underpin key areas of medicinal chemistry; chemical biology; biotechnology; and, more recently, synthetic biology and nucleic acids-based materials. The preparation of nucleoside-based antivirals is even more pertinent in the current climate, alongside nucleic acids-based technologies that provide the foundations for the detection of viral infections. Despite this plethora of critical applications, the chemistry of nucleoside and nucleotide transformations remains challenging, and this Special Issue aims to share new synthetic insights and applications of nucleoside and nucleotide 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.
