Special Issue "Advances in Organic Electrosynthesis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 March 2019)
Organic electrosynthesis has existed for nearly 200 years, since Faraday’s pioneering decarboxylative conversion of acetic acid to ethane in the 19th century; however, electrosynthesis has not had a sustained impact on the field of organic synthesis until now. In the past few years, the field of electrosynthesis has undergone a renaissance in popularity with examples such as the elegant electrosynthesis of Dixiamycin B, a natural product that was intractable by conventional synthesis, to standardised electrosynthesis reactor development for reproducible and scalable synthesis. We are now in the midst of a more widespread adoption of electrosynthesis techniques in organic synthesis.
In this Special Issue, we invite short communications from colleagues in organic electrosynthesis who have used electrosynthesis in their synthetic campaigns. In particular, we invite papers on the use of electrosynthesis in the spectrum of organic transformations such as natural product, medicinal chemistry and functional group manipulation. The scope of this special edition will also allow for mechanistic studies and advances in reaction design including electrocatalysis to be summarised in one edition.
This forthcoming Special Issue of Molecules entitled “Advances in Organic Electrosynthesis” will be devoted to this synthesis where the electron is the reagent, covering recent key findings in the above fields of research. We look forward to reading your contributions.

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 1800 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.
