Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since the end of the 18th century, it has been well known that chirality is fundamental to the natural world around us because, at the molecular level, the highly asymmetric landscape of many fundamental components of plants and animals, such as enzymes, proteins, polysaccharides, and nucleic acids, can be found existing in their chirally pure forms. Because of the chiral nature of biomolecules, their activity can be successfully modified or even blocked by synthetic chiral agents. Therefore, enantioselective syntheses of known or new biologically active molecules, the development of efficient chiral catalysts, or new separation technics for the successful separation of enantiomers are very intensively researched areas within organic chemistry.

The main aim of the present Special Issue is to collect the results of fundamental studies and applications in a multidisciplinary research area that enrols chiral compounds. It will bring together novel, unique, and innovative approaches in the fields of enantioselective organic synthesis, stereoselective transformations, as well as asymmetric organocatalysis and chiral recognition studies using chiral sources, including results of pharmacological studies. Both original research papers and reviews in these fields are welcome.

Prof. Dr. Zsolt Szakonyi

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.
