In the early 1980s, the first lysine dendrimers were synthesized (Denkewalter, R. G.; Kolc, J.; Lukasavage, W. J., U.S. Patent 4289872, Sept 15, 1981), and in 1982 the first article was published on the properties of these dendrimers (S.M. Aharoni, С.R. Crosby, E.K. Walsh, Macromolecules 1982, 15, 1093).
Our Special Issue commemorates the 40th anniversary of this first article on lysine dendrimers.
We would like to include papers of those who have made a significant contribution to the development of synthesis methods, computer simulations, and investigations into the properties and applications of lysine and peptide dendrimers. We would also like to see here articles of those who have made major contributions to the broad area of the synthesis, investigations and applications of PAMAM, PPI, carbosilane and other types of dendrimers as well as dendrigrafts, molecular brushes and other highly branched polymers for industrial and biomedical applications.
Both reviews and research papers are welcome for this Special Issue.
Prof. Dr. Igor Neelov
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.
