Special Issue "Development of Biologically Active Compounds – Design, Synthesis and Application"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 February 2024 | Viewed by 2721
The design of the new organic compounds and metal complexes is one of the rational approaches to drug discovery and development. Every year, thousands of new organic compounds and metal complexes are synthesized, but only few show biological activities comparable to or higher than those displayed by known drugs.
This Special Issue aims to focus on the design, synthesis and application of new, medicinal organic compounds and their metal complexes. We will also welcome the presentation of new methods of preparation and new techniques for the characterization of the compounds with medical applications as potential new drugs. Authors are strongly encouraged to contribute original research articles, reviews, and short communications that described the synthesis and medicinal application of new organic compounds and their metal complexes.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
