Topical Issue on Bond Activation

      ◄ Back to journal 


Dr. Burgert Blom, Maastricht University, Netherlands


This topical issue is devoted to contemporary themes in bond-activation chemistry featuring peer-reviewed original contributions from international authors engaged in this activity. A special focus will be recent progress in catalytic (organometallic) bond activation chemistry, but other areas involved in this chemistry including enzymatic/bio catalysis and heterogeneously catalyzed bond activation will also be featured. We will attempt to cover a broad scope of bond activations mediated by these aforementioned methodologies. Contributions in the form of research articles, communications and reviews are most welcome for submission for this exciting special edition.



The authors are kindly invited to register at our paper processing system at: http://www.editorialmanager.com/openchem/ and submit their contribution using a special track established for this topical issue. All papers will go through the Open Chemistry’s high standards, quick, fair and comprehensive peer-review procedure. Instructions for authors are available here
