Dr. Laia Josa-Culleré, from the Medicinal Chemistry & Synthesis group, together with Dr. Plamen Angelov (Plovdiv University Paisii Hiledarski) and Dr. Pengfei Yang (School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Qilu University of Technology), acting as guest editors of the journal Molecules, of MDPI Publisher, welcome authors to submit their articles on a special issue on Natural Compounds and New Analogs in Chemical Synthesis: A Themed Issue in Honor of Professor Dr. Mark Moloney.
Much like in life, in chemical synthesis the journey can be more important than the destination – often it is not the target, but the methodology developed along the way, that matters the most. There are countless examples of bioactive molecules and drugs discovered in the pursuit of natural product synthesis. In this issue, they invite contributors to share their own stories of synthesis and bioactive evaluation of natural compounds and new analogs.
Deadline for manuscript submission: 30 April 2023
