Special Issue "Synthesis Methods with Green Chemistry Aspect"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2021.
Interests: organic chemistry; medicinal chemistry; bisphosphonates; atp analogues; high performance counter current chromatography (hpccc); green chemistry; synthesis methods
This Special Issue comprises selected papers related to synthesis methods with green chemistry aspect. We have several fundamental problems to be resolved, such as global warming and plastic exposure, so it is evident that we need improved and more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly methods to prepare chemical compounds even if they are prepared on a small scale, according to the motto “great oaks from little acorns grow”. In recent decades, environmental issues have become more and more important questions to be tackled by industrial synthetic chemistry. The need to reduce the production of waste and the use of hazardous and toxic substances have stimulated a new way of thinking, called green chemistry. Green chemistry focuses on the design of processes that minimize and/or eliminate the use and the generation of those hazardous and toxic substances while producing more environmentally friendly products.

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. Sustainability 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 1900 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.
