Submission is open for five Thematic Series in this journal.

We currently have open Call for Papers where you can submit your most exciting, original research to the Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry (BJOC) as a peer-reviewed article for these Thematic Series:

1) Organofluorine chemistry IV

2) Nucleic acids chemistry II

3) Integrated multistep flow synthesis

4) Recent advances in materials for organic light emitting diodes

5) Electrosynthesis II

Please find more detailed information below. Note that we accept submissions in all other fields of organic chemistry on a continuous basis for our regular BJOC journal stream.

Why BJOC?

BJOC is a platinum open-access journal (submission fees are fully funded by the Beilstein-Institut, all articles remain open to the public), publishing high-quality peer-reviewed articles that are archived and indexed in all major repositories, search engines and databases – complete with a DOI specific to your paper. You retain the rights to your paper according to the Creative Commons Attribution License agreement. To ensure only high-quality articles are published, each article undergoes an initial quality check, plagiarism check and peer review.

Thematic Series

BJOC began publishing theme-grouped volumes (Thematic Series) in 2006 and has demonstrated great success with more than 60 Thematic Series published to date. Note that the articles of this series will appear together on the Thematic Series webpage, but will be individually published in the regular journal stream as soon as they are completed – no waiting on the entire volume to be accepted before your article is available online!

Before submitting your article, please carefully review the Instructions for Authors and consult the Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry Editorial Team if you have questions regarding submission and processing of your article.

 


1) Organofluorine chemistry IV

This is the fourth in the series of Thematic Issues on organo-fluorine chemistry for this journal.

The introduction of fluorine into organic molecules is widely practised particularly when tuning the properties of mole­cules for specialist functions. Fluorine substitution finds a prominent role in pharmaceutical development, in gover­ning bioactivity in a wide range of agrochemical products, in soft materials chemistry such as liquid crystals, in photo­resist polymers, self assembling monolayers and in positron emission tomography. Allied to this breadth of activity is a steady development in the number and range of fluorination reagents and methods.

Thematic Series: Organofluorine chemistry IV
Editor: David O’Hagan

Before submitting your article, please carefully review the Instructions for Authors and consult the Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry Editorial Team if you have questions regarding submission and processing of your article.



2) Nucleic acids chemistry II

The organic chemistry and synthesis of nucleic acids allows introducing natural and artificial functional groups as well as probes, markers or other biologically active molecules into these types of biopolymers and their synthetic analogs. Thus, nucleic acid chemistry is of fundamental importance for the actual and future research in chemical biology. Moreover, beside its biological functions, DNA and RNA are considered as an increasingly important architecture and scaffold for two- and three-dimensional objects in material sciences and photochemistry. These are enough reasons to summarize and highlight the different aspects of nucleic acid chemistry by focused reviews that are written by leading experts in this research field.

3) Integrated multistep flow synthesis

This special issue is inspired by the research on integrated multistep flow synthesis as proposed by the just started FET-OPEN ONE-FLOW project of EU.

The ONE-FLOW idea is to translate 'vertical hierarchy' of common multistep flow synthesis with its complex machinery (many serially connected reactors and separators; all being process controlled) into a self-organising 'horizontal hierarchy' of a compartmentalized flow reactor system - a biomimetic digital flow cascade machinery with just one reactor passage. Along those lines, this project aims to develop a digital flow cascade machinery which performs all the multiple reactions in one step, which includes inventing innovative catalytic cascades, and uplift that by enabling the best bio- and chemocatalysts working door by door.

4) Recent advances in materials for organic light emitting diodes

This theme issue covers OLED materials design, synthesis, characterization and utilization in devices. Materials include small molecule fluorophores, polymers, dendrimers, organometallic complexes, thermally activated delayed fluorescence compounds, compounds exhibiting aggrega­tion induced emission, and compounds exhibiting triplet-triplet annihilation.

5) Electrosynthesis II

Since electricity will be the prime energy of the future being provided mostly by regenerative resources such as wind power and photovoltaics, its direct use in chemical conversion represents a reemerging field in chemical synthesis. Electro-organic synthesis as methodology is inherently safe, outstanding sustainable because reagent waste is avoided. Novel concepts for electrolytes, strategies for reaction screening, and electrode materials pave the way to a disruptive synthetic methodology which might be a game changer for future chemistry. The articles will deal with the latest electrosynthetic innovations and electro-organic transformations.
