Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The azido unit belongs to the most important functional groups in organic chemistry because it is a highly useful device to prepare a variety of nitrogen-containing products such as amines and amine derivatives, nitren-derived compounds, nitrogen heterocycles, and many others. Since the discovery of the first organic azide by Peter Griess in 1864, a large number of applications in organic synthesis as well as life sciences and material sciences emphasize the significance of organic azides.

In recent years, however, the progress of azide chemistry has become very rapid due to several new transformations based on radical and oxidation reactions, especially owing to the introduction of click chemistry, including the 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of azides at alkynes. Moreover, molecules with novel combinations of the azido unit and adjacent other functional groups, as well as new applications of organic azides as high-energy materials and in biochemically relevant ligation and labeling methods, have increased the general interest in azido compounds.

In this Special Issue of Molecules, research articles covering all areas of organic azide chemistry are welcome to present the state of research in connection with this exciting functional group.

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.
