Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Natural products are an important source of innovative drug discovery for their complex chemical structures and broad biological activities. The biosynthesis and chemical synthesis of natural products play a critical role in the development of new innovative drugs. Meanwhile, the synthesis of natural products is the most active field in organic synthesis and natural product chemistry. Recently, with the quick development of synthetic biology, the biosynthesis of natural products has achieved impressive achievement, which has also inspired organic chemists to develop novel synthetic methodologies and strategies toward the synthesis of bioactive natural products. Following on from these advances, this Special Issue, titled ‘Advances in the Biosynthesis and Chemical Synthesis of Natural Products’, invites the submission of research papers and reviews on the biosynthesis and chemical synthesis of natural products.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
