Special Issue "Synthetic Heterocyclic Chemistry"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2021).
Interests: free radical organic and polymer chemistry; heterocyclic and medicinal chemistry
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Special Issue in Molecules: Recent Advances in Nitrogen-Containing Aromatic Heterocycles
Special Issue in Molbank: Heterocycle Reactions
According to "Heterocyclic Chemistry" by J. A. Joule and K. Mills (Wiley, 5th Ed), "heterocyclic chemistry comprises at least half of all organic chemistry research worldwide". A heterocycle is any organic ring-compound containing at least one non-carbon (hetero) atom within the ring. Heterocycles are mainstays of medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, natural products, specialized materials, and biomaterials. Their synthesis, functionalization, and reactivity continue to be at the forefront of organic chemistry research. Heterocycle reactions have included cycloadditions, multicomponent reactions, and ring-expansions. Some reactions are concerted, some proceed via radical intermediates, and some are mediated by metals, light or organocatalysis. This Special Issue is running in parallel with another named, “Heterocycle Reaction” in our sister journal, Molbank: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/molbank/special_issues/Heterocycle_Reaction
In the Molbank SI, single novel compounds can be published, while in this Molecules SI, we are looking for communications, full papers, and reviews on the latest developments in synthesis and reactivity of heterocycles.

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.
