Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Asymmetric catalysis (also known as enantioselective catalysis) is considered an optimal solution for gaining access to enantiomerically enriched/pure compounds. Within this process, metal complexes carrying chiral ligands are used to return equivalents of desired enantiomerically enriched chiral products. Due to the increasing number of available methodologies used to access enantiomerically enriched/pure organic compounds, the scope of asymmetric catalysis has greatly expanded to include a broad range of chemical transformations. Ideally, a practical asymmetric catalyst should provide high yield and selectivity (chemo-, diastereo- and enantioselectivity) for a broad range of substrates in different reaction conditions, whilst being inexpensive and readily available in both enantiopure forms. A large number of complexes have already been reported, and many of these complexes have been studied and used in asymmetric catalysis. 

This Special Issue aims to cover recent progress and advances in the field of asymmetric catalysis. This includes, but is not restricted to, the design and synthesis of novel chiral catalysts, their applications in the development of new asymmetric methodologies, and the synthesis of commercially valuable molecules and natural products.

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. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 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.
