Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is one of the techniques of choice employed by bioorganic chemists. Indeed, it finds application in the study of the structure and conformation of bioorganic molecules and their molecular interactions. Notably, it can be used for the characterization of both large and small biomolecules, as well as for the structural resolution of large supramolecular complexes. Furthermore, its intrinsically quantitative nature can be exploited to determine the purity of the organic molecules present in a sample, as well as for the identification and quantification of metabolites present in complex mixtures, such as biofluids, cells, tissues and natural extracts. Finally, NMR spectroscopy makes it possible to elucidate the mechanisms of organic reactions, also monitoring them in real time, including those involving enzymatic catalysis.
Original research articles and review papers elucidating how NMR spectroscopy can provide new insights and/or original methodological approaches to the study of bioorganic chemistry are very welcome from outstanding experts of the topic.

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.
