Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to present a Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Science, entitled “Design, Synthesis and Biological Applications of Functional Compounds and Materials”.

This Special Issue will primarily focus on the rational design and synthesis of the organic functional compounds and materials employed in the biological applications and will include (but are not limited to) discussions of drug development, administration and delivery, personalized healthcare and the monitoring of the parameters of biological objects and living bodies.

The modern toolbox of synthetic chemistry provides extremely broad chemical diversity, and rational design plays an extremely vital role in the development of functional compounds and materials, increasing the win rate of the targeted synthesis. Approaches to the targeted synthesis of biological and other applications are also essential for the development of the functional compounds and materials.

In this Special Issue, we welcome the studies devoted to the design of functional compounds and materials andsynthetic approaches for the preparation of various classes, families and scaffolds of such materials. We are also interested in structure–property studies, examinations of biological activity and research into other functional applications of organic compounds and materials.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Rational design and synthesis of functional compounds and materials;
  • Synthesis of biologically active compounds and materials;
  • Structure–property relationship;
  • In silico screening for the functional properties.

Dr. Olga Yu Bakulina

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.
