From its beginnings in the 1960s, solid phase chemistry, i.e., chemical synthesis involving one immobilized reactant, has evolved to become a standard technique in many fields of organic chemistry, especially peptide synthesis and combinatorial chemistry. The great advantage of the easy removal of immobilized products by simple filtration has attracted both industry and academic research to contribute substantial effort to optimize reactions performed on solid supports which is witnessed by the development of a plethora of specialized chemical and analytical tools and the use of microwave heating. This special issue of “Molecules” is devoted to reporting recent applications of the concept of solid phase 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 monthly 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.
