Special Issue "Radicals, Mechanisms and Synthesis: A Themed Issue in Honor of the Many Contributions of Prof. Dr. John C. Walton"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 2272
Interests: radical chemistry and electron transfer reactions – their mechanisms and applications
John C. Walton joined the faculty of Dundee University in 1967 and moved to St. Andrews University in 1970, rising to full professor in 1997 and becoming Research Professor in 2007. He is renowned for the application of physical organic methods to organic mechanisms and for EPR spectroscopic studies of many kinds of radicals. He has developed radical-mediated synthetic protocols including those based around: “pro-aromatic” cyclohexadienyl reagents, oxime derivatives, photoredox methods employing titanium dioxide and for research on radical enhancement of heterolysis. He has published over 300 articles in learned journals as well as 3 books. He was awarded the Royal Society of Chemistry Silver Medal for Organic Reaction Mechanisms in 1994 and was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1995.

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.
