Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Past decades have seen the birth of innovative technologies and strategies enabling the medicinal chemist to explore new therapeutic opportunities and better contribute to improvements in health and wellbeing.

Exceptional progress has been made in microwave- and ultrasound-assisted syntheses, mechanochemistry, multi-component reactions, combinatorial chemistry, high-throughput screenings, computational studies, analytical methods, spectroscopy and imaging, and many other topics of critical importance in modern pharmaceutical sciences.

This Special Issue is aimed at giving our readers a vast overview of these innovations and how they can be exploited to advance scientific knowledge and understanding in drug discovery and development.
