Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A great number of natural products of terrestrial or marine origin contain a heterocyclic moiety as the main structural feature. Most of these compounds have important biological activities, being used in different fields such as medicine, agrochemistry, and the pharmaceutical or cosmetic industry.

As Guest Editor of this Special Issue of Molecules, I invite you to provide papers and review articles describing synthetic or biosynthetic approaches to heterocycles. Manuscripts describing total or partial synthesis of bioheterocycles, as well as analogues, are most welcome.
