Upcoming Topics

Dispersion Effects 
Peter R. Scheiner / Stefan Grimme / Benjamin List (Send e-mail
Deadline: July 15, 2022
Link to the virtual issue coming soon

Dispersion interactions are the counterpart of steric repulsion that has served classic models in organic synthesis well. Over the last few years is has become apparent that the interplay of the two is essential for understanding thermodynamic stability, molecular recognition, chemical selectivity through transition-state stabilization, protein folding, enzyme catalysis, and more. Dispersion is much better understood now but it is not yet at the verge of being routinely included in synthesis planning. Making rational use of dispersion as a strategic element in synthesis is therefore a timely issue.

Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in Chemical Synthesis and Catalysis
Benjamin List (Send e-mail) /
Connor W. Coley
Deadline: June 20, 2022
Access virtual issue

Machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) are currently substantially growing in all areas of chemistry but a Cluster devoted to applications in chemical synthesis and catalysis, despite the particularly tremendous potential of ML and AI in these areas, has been missing. If you are an active researcher in this field we invite you to contribute.

Design and Chemical Synthesis of Antivirals
Benjamin List (Send e-mail) /
Dirk Trauner
Deadline: May 31, 2022
Access virtual issue

Antivirals have had a major positive impact on human health. We think that considering the current world situation it is timely to celebrate the contributions of chemical antivirals to our life on this planet.

Organic Photoredox Catalysis in Synthesis – Honoring Prof. Shunichi Fukuzumi's 70th Birthday
David A. Nicewicz (Send e-mail) / Shunichi Fukuzumi
Deadline: March 31, 2022
Access virtual issue

It is with great pleasure that we mark the 70th birthday of Prof. Shunichi Fukuzumi with a dedicated SYNLETT Cluster on 'Organic Photoredox Catalysis '  – to celebrate the career of Prof. Shunichi Fukuzumi and his many contributions to organic photoredox catalysis.

Development and Applications of Novel Ligands/Catalysts and Mechanistic Studies on Catalysis
Ang Li (Send e-mail) / Zhipeng Zhang / Baoguo Zhao
Deadline: March 31, 2022
Access virtual issue 

Ligands/catalysts especially the chiral ones have played a crucial role in modern synthetic chemistry, which enable organic chemists to invent numerous new transformations with great control of chemo-, regio-, stereo-, and/or enantioselectivities. During the last decades, various ligands/catalysts have been developed, greatly enlarging the toolbox of chemists for organic synthesis. In this cluster entitled “Development and Applications of Novel Ligands/Catalysts and Mechanistic Studies on Catalysis”, we welcome research papers as well as reviews regarding development or application of novel ligands/catalysts. Researches on development and application of novel chiral catalysts including transition-metal catalysts and organocatalysts especially developed in recent years are particularly encouraged. The related mechanistic studies are also highly welcome since mechanistic investigations could provide a better understanding of the pathways and promote further development and applications of the reactions.

Late-Stage Functionalization
Benjamin List (Send e-mail) /
Tobias Ritter
Deadline: closed
Access virtual issue

The term late-stage functionalization (LSF) is now frequently used in methodology development to describe transformations on complex molecules. Such reactions include catalytic and non-catalytic reactions, C–H functionalizations, and functional group manipulations, with one or several desired products.

12th EuCheMS Organic Division Young Investigator Workshop (YIW2020/2021)
Stefanie Baumann (Send e-mail) / Susanne Haak 
Deadline: closed
Access virtual issue

This Special Section includes contributions from the participants of the 12th EuCheMS Organic Division Young Investigator Workshop.

Nickel in Catalysis
Rubén Martin (Send e-mail) /
Gary Molander
Deadline: closed
Access issue

Taking into consideration the exponential growth in 'modern nickel-catalyzed reactions' to rapidly build up molecular complexity from simple precursors via one- or two-electron manifolds, it became clear that a Cluster in SYNLETT would be appropriate to highlight the outstanding possibilities that this field might offer to the community. Indeed, 'modern nickel-catalyzed reactions' has emerged as an invaluable methodology with numerous applications, ranging from classical synthetic organic (organometallic) chemistry to photoredox catalysis or even biologically-oriented endeavors. Therefore, we have decided to undertake this task and invite you to contribute to our Cluster by reporting on your most exciting work from your laboratories.

The Power of Transition Metals:
An Unending Well-Spring of New Reactivity  

Gary Molander / Fiona Shortt de Hernandez (Send e-mail)
Deadline: closed
Access issue

In 2020, Science of Synthesis will celebrate its 20th anniversary. At the San Francisco ACS National Meeting (August 16–20, 2020) a symposium takes place to celebrate 20 years of Science of Synthesis but also the career of Prof. Barry Trost and his many contributions to organic synthesis. It is with great pleasure that we mark this anniversary of the founding of this reference work with a Special Issue in SYNLETT, which we would like to dedicate Prof. Barry Trost.
