Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Organic synthesis is crucial for the preparation of new carbon-containing compounds that can have various applications: as catalysts, pharmaceuticals, medicinals, modern organic materials, molecular sensors, dyes and pigments, etc. Inspiration for new compounds is often found in nature, by studying and modifying natural products. Organic chemists are constantly searching for better, cheaper, more environmentally friendly, and more efficient ways to make these compounds. Addition reactions, in which upon breaking multiple bonds, new single bonds are formed, are the cornerstone for the synthesis of structurally more complex organic molecules and are widely used. Cycloaddition reactions in particular are recognized as very efficient with a high atom economy, and the current Nobel Prize is awarded for the research and application of bioorthogonal chemistry. Experimental synthetic work is complemented by computational studies that have greatly improved the understanding of the mechanistic details of addition reactions.

The Special Issue "Recent Progress in Addition Reactions and Organic Synthesis" of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences presents the latest experimental and computational efforts of scholars in this area, focusing on the study of molecular mechanisms. In addition to original research articles, review articles on these topics are also welcome.

This Special Issue is dedicated to Professor Ronald N. Warrener on the occasion of his 90th birthday.

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.

Abstract
A source of Brønsted acid centers, generated on the surface of two mesoporous silica supports of different structures (SBA-15 and MCF), was 3-(trihydroxysilyl)-1-propanesufonic acid (TPS). The materials obtained were characterized and applied as catalysts for the oxidative desulfurization of dibenzothiophene (DBT) with hydrogen [...] Read more.
A source of Brønsted acid centers, generated on the surface of two mesoporous silica supports of different structures (SBA-15 and MCF), was 3-(trihydroxysilyl)-1-propanesufonic acid (TPS). The materials obtained were characterized and applied as catalysts for the oxidative desulfurization of dibenzothiophene (DBT) with hydrogen peroxide as a model ODS (oxidative desulfurization) process. The properties of the materials were examined via nitrogen physisorption, XRD (X-ray Diffraction) and elemental analysis showing the preservation of the support structure after modification with organosilane species. Due to the aggregation of catalyst particles in the reaction mixture, the SBA-15 based catalyst was not very effective in DBT oxidation. Contrary, TPS/MCF catalyst exhibited a very good activity (almost total conversion of DBT after 1 h in optimized reaction conditions) and stability in dibenzothiophene oxidation in mild reaction conditions.
