Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

More than 35 years after the “cascade” synthesis of the first dendrimer, the Newcome’s “arborol” (J. Org. Chem. 1985, 50, 2003–2004), the tremendous, widespread development of this science covers today almost all facets of applied macromolecular chemistry, from exotic organic materials to pharmaceutical carriers, based on new synthetic and structural strategic concepts. As key building-blocks, dendrons containing tandem units of type p-donors, H-bond donors, organic anions, etc. vs. their corresponding p-acceptors, H-bond acceptors, organic cations, and innovative combination thereof have become an exciting and challenging target in the field. Participants of the symposium, as well as all researchers working in the field, are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Molecules, which report on the design, synthesis, structure, and applications of novel dendritic candidates containing organic donor vs. acceptor tandems in dendrimer elaboration.

Prof. Dr. Mircea Darabantu

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.
