Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

For many years, radical chemistry has been providing alternative approaches for the synthesis of essential molecules that can be applied in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. Previously inaccessible “key” intermediates and final products are now available due to the recent developments in the field involving radical transformations. “Green” and sustainable routes for the synthesis of vital organic scaffolds are now possible thanks to radical reactions that dominate many state-of-the-art procedures. Additionally, the elucidation of complex mechanisms underlying biological systems behavior, involving radicals, has boosted the research on enzymatic reactions, DNA and unsaturated lipid damage, protein transformation, cell signaling, bioimaging, uncaging drug methods, natural extracts antioxidant capacity, etc. 

Submissions of research or review articles on topics related to the “Radical Chemistry Applications in Organic Synthesis and Chemical Biology” are highly encouraged

Dr. Michael A. Terzidis

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2700 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.
