Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The development of new synthetic methods for the preparation of macrocycles, as well as their applications using macrocyclic compounds, are topics of great interest nowadays. Indeed, macrocycles are employed in several research fields, including theragnostics, food science, catalysis, sensing, materials science, molecular machinery, among other areas of study. This Special Issue, entitled, "Synthesis and Applications of Macrocyclic Compounds", aims to collect research articles, communications and comprehensive reviews (>4000 words) focused on three main topics:

(i)  Synthetic methodologies to prepare new macrocycles, or compounds containing macrocycles.

(ii)  Development of applications in which macrocycles, or compounds containing macrocycles, play a key role.

(iii)  Fundamental studies of different properties of macrocycle-based compounds.

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.
