This Special Issue is focused on photochemical and electrochemical applications for organic synthesis. Chemical bond formation and breaking in the presence of photo-/electrocatalysts enable the green transformation of organic molecules under sustainable and mild conditions. Over the past decade, challenging bond formations, including cross-coupling reactions, (de)halogenation, and atom insertion/deletion, have been achieved via such methods. Various classes of homogeneous and heterogenous catalysts are developed for selective and robust catalysis with different substrates under quite diverse environments. However, further investigation is still required to solve critical issues, such as back-electron transfer, inactive chemical bonds, the energy-transformation rate, and the scaling up of reactions. Under these circumstances, this Special Issue welcomes all kinds of original works, including, but not limited to, the design/selection of electro-/photocatalysts, expanding the tolerance of reactions, and the exploration of reaction mechanisms.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
