Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Transition metal catalysis has enabled a wide range of organic transformations in an efficient and selective manner. The impact and importance of this approach have been demonstrated by the three Nobel Prizes awarded for developing new synthetic methods employing transition metals: (i) 2001 for stereoselective catalysis, (ii) 2005 for olefin metathesis, and (iii) 2010 for a palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction. Among the various bond-forming reactions that have been improved by utilizing transition metals, the C–N forming reactions are significant due to their prevalence in natural products, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and organic materials. In particular, approximately 85% of commercially available pharmaceuticals contain amine functionality and are widely found in π-conjugated materials. Continued research on this method will further enrich the organic synthesis toolkit that can be utilized by researchers in various fields. We invite scientists to contribute research papers, reviews, and communications to the Special Issue entitled “Transition-Metal-Catalyzed C–N Formation and Its Application”. We believe that this Special Issue will attract widespread interest and inspire researchers to advance the field.

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. Crystals 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 2600 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.
