Synthesis of Biologically Potent Organophosphorus and Organosulfur Compounds

Call for Papers

Organophosphorus and organosulfur research made significant impact in the scientific community with its far reaching influence in organic and medicinal chemistry. Recent advances in this field are focusing their importance in the drug design, role played in organic synthesis, quantitative structure-activity relationship, molecular modeling, prodrug synthesis, drug targeting, molecular aspects of drug metabolism, drug-receptor interactions, and pharmacological activity. With this background, significant contributions of organophosphorus and sulfur compounds are investigated in this special issue.

This special issue’s main emphasis is to cover the research describing new chemistry, comparative synthetic, mechanistic aspects, and structural features in wide areas like synthetic organic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, biochemistry, natural products chemistry, pharmaceutical and medicinal chemistry, molecular modeling, and structural biology. The original research papers and review articles covering all these aspects of organophosphorus and organosulfur compounds will be considered for processing and publication. In this endeavour, we invite investigators and researchers to submit original research papers and review articles for publication in this special issue of Journal of Chemistry. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Organophosphorus and sulfur reagents in organic synthesis
  • Synthesis and characterization of new organophosphorus and organosulfur compounds
  • Study on their biological properties like anticancer, antioxidant, antitubercular, antiviral, and antimicrobial activities and so forth

Before submission authors should carefully read the journal’s Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jchem/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/jchem/organic.chemistry/sulfur/ according to the following timetable:
