In recent years, the chemistry of cyclopropanes and cyclopropenes has experienced a renaissance. Novel asymmetric methods to prepare and use these strained molecules are now accessible. Moreover, cyclopropane and cyclopropene derivatives have found interesting applications in catalysis, have shown to be excellent biorthogonal chemical reporters and are playing an increasing role in drug discovery. This thematic issue intends to cover a broad spectrum of articles on the chemistry and applications of these fascinating compounds.
Additional articles on this topic will be published here soon.
