Terpenes are exciting natural products from several points of view. Their structure elucidation is often challenging, and also their chemical synthesis and biosynthetic investigations are difficult to perform and require special strategies. Terpenes can be used for transfer of stereochemical information in new enantioselective reagents or catalysts, or they can be of interest because of their unique bioactivities. Any article covering one or several of these aspects of terpene chemistry is welcome, regardless if it is an experimental or a theoretical study. Studies on natural products of purely terpenoid origin and on meroterpenoids are both welcome.

This theamtic issue is dedicated to Prof. Kenji Mori who passed away on April 16, 2019. With him the scientific community lost one of the most eminent pheromone and terpene chemists of the past decades. Prof. Mori has published more than 1,200 scientific articles and was actively engaged in science for more than 62 years. He pioneered the importance of chirality in natural signalling compounds and was most respected for his accuracy in this field of research. Prof. Mori’s work will be continued by his countless students, collaborators from academia and industry, and many researchers worldwide that have been influenced by him.

Submission is still open.
