Polycyclic heterocycles are very important structural motifs existing in nature with significant agrochemical, biological, and pharmacological activities. The development of methods for the preparation of these polyheterocycles has been of longstanding interest. A quick and efficient synthetic route that leads to either natural products or functional materials is the aim of every organic protocol. However, it is essential to develop facile reactions that easily transfer simple building blocks into the desired complex structures in preferably few synthetic steps. Domino reactions represent a powerful strategy for the rapid formation of multiple bonds in one pot. In recent years, this class of reactions, involving metal-catalyzed bond activation, has emerged as an important field of research in organic synthesis.
This Special Issue’s scope is devoted to the latest advancements in the synthesis of polycyclic heterocyclic molecules. Both original research papers and reviews are welcomed. The scope is broad and may include the elaboration of new heterocyclization reactions or domino processes, catalyzed by homogeneous or heterogeneous catalysts, in conventional and/or nonconventional solvents for the synthesis of heterocycles of industrial, agrochemical, biological or pharmacological interest.

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 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. Catalysts is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
