Submission is open for five Thematic Series in this journal.

published on

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) Integrated multistep flow synthesis

2) Recent advances in materials for organic light emitting diodes

3) Electrosynthesis II

4) Peptide-drug conjugates

5) Hypervalent iodine chemistry

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) 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.

2) 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.

3) 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.

4) Peptide-drug conjugates

Conjugates of drugs with a delivery vector targeting human diseases would be a "magic bullet" according to the early vision of Nobel laureate Paul Ehrlich. Molecules that specifically recognize and bind to structures (like membrane proteins) on the surface e.g. of a tumour cell are suitable as such a delivery vector (homing device). The recent years witnessed the regulatory approval of antibody-drug conjugates. Peptides have distinct advantages over proteins: They can have a high drug loading, easily penetrate tissue, and are easily prepared in a homogenous form with straightforward and well-defined conjugation chemistry. Hence, the development of peptide-drug conjugates is currently an important research area in bioorganic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, and biochemistry. Articles dealing with the development of peptide-drug conjugates for targeted delivery in tumour therapy, but also in other contexts will be considered.

5) Hypervalent iodine chemistry

This series issue on Hypervalent Iodine Chemistry covers all aspects and highlights current developments of this area. New insights have led to many research activities during the last years, which are clearly reflected in the many high quality contributions assembled in this series. Theoretical work is underpinning the development of novel compounds and catalysts, which have now already been established as powerful metal-free reagents. Their applications in many different areas of chemistry have shown that they often outperform traditional procedures and even allowing new and unusual reactions to take place.
