Welcome to SYNLETT
Accounts and Rapid Communications in Chemical SynthesisSYNLETT is an international journal reporting research results and current trends in synthetic organic chemistry in short personalized reviews and preliminary communications. It covers all fields of scientific endeavor that involve organic synthesis, including catalysis, organometallic, medicinal, biological, and photochemistry, but also related disciplines and offers the possibility to publish scientific primary data.
SYNLETT Editor-in-Chief Benjamin List speaks about the advantages of publishing in SYNLETT and about the impact the journal had on his own career.
The following special features and article types are published in SYNLETT:
are personalized reviews about important recent work of individual research groups. If you would like to contribute with an Account, please contact Prof. K. P. C. Vollhardt first as those articles are normally invited.
- Synpacts Articles
are short personalized articles featuring breakthroughs by young authors in 'hot' areas, within the general context of the field. If you would like to contribute a Synpacts article, please contact Prof. K. P. C. Vollhardt.
are collections of letters on rapidly evolving topics in designated areas of research.
are preliminary reports of new research results whose significance to the scientific community justifies rapid communication.
- New Tools in Synthesis
are reviews of conceptual methodological or technical developments in areas of synthetic strategy giving innovative and practical support for the synthetic chemist in the laboratory. If you would like to contribute with a New Tools in Synthesis article, please contact the Editorial Office first with your proposal.
- Spotlights (section will be discontinued)
are highlighting the characteristics of a reagent and its importance in current research, chosen by pre-doctoral students. New proposals or submissions are not accepted anymore because the Spotlight section will be discontinued. Only proposals/manuscripts that have been accepted already will go through the review and – as the case may be – publication process.
is also available as part of the online edition of SYNLETT via Thieme E-Journals. More information can be found here.
SYNLETT is indexed in the most important databases: Current Contents/Physical, Chemical and Earth Sciences, Chemical Abstracts, Science Citation Index, Research Alert, Scisearch, Index Chemicus, Chemistry Citation Index, Current Chemical Reactions, Reaction Citation Index, and Biological Abstracts.
