Organic chemistry plays an essential role in the discovery and development of drugs. With the help of a wide variety of organic synthesis techniques, an unlimited number of small organic molecules can be created for drug screening purposes. Every year, a vast amount of organic compounds are synthesized, and there have been remarkable advances in the innovation of active molecules based on organic compounds, such as the rational design of heterocyclic pesticides/medicines, (biomimetic) synthesis, active screening, and the exploration of molecular targets.
The primary focus of this Special Issue is to showcase the design, synthesis, and biological application (active screen, risks assessment, mechanisms of action, etc.) of new organic compounds for drug discovery. We would be delighted to receive contributions of research articles, reviews, and short communications that document the design, synthesis and biological application of organic compounds and focus on (but are not limited to) the following themes:
- Inventing new methods for obtaining organic compounds;
- Heterocyclic compounds and their biological activity;
- The design, synthesis and biological activity of new molecules;
- Founding and action mechanism of organic compounds;
- In silico, in vitro, and in vivo biological evaluation of organic compounds.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
