Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 May 2023) | Viewed by 5125
Interests: organic synthesis; retrosynthesis; heterocycles; natural products; total synthesis; small organic molecules; drug discovery
Ever since ancient times small organic molecules have constituted an important role as remedies for various diseases. The tremendous development in the area of synthetic organic chemistry the last century have provided the contemporary organic chemists with an increased toolbox of synthetic transformations possible in the lab. Both to make new compounds and to refine the routes of already existing ones. The aim of this special issue “Design and synthesis of bioactive organic molecules” is to provide the readers with recent examples of syntheses of bioactive organic molecules. Regardless of biological target, large or small, natural or synthetic compounds, chiral or not, small or large scale, with an emphasis on the synthetic chemistry.
