Design of Macrocyclic Compounds for Biomedical Applications- Research Topic in Frontiers in Chemistry

Posted by

Frontiers in Chemistry (IF: 5.221, Q1) has launched the research topic: Design of Macrocyclic Compounds for Biomedical Applications. Volume II.

The aim of the current Research Topic is to cover promising, recent and novel research trends in the synthesis of new macrocycles (crown ethers, cyclodextrins, cucurbiturils, calixarenes, porphyrins, pillararenes, and others) and their biomedical applications. This will be presented in form of Reviews, Original Research, Mini-reviews, and Perspectives. Areas to be covered in this Research Topic may include, but are not limited to:

 • Supramolecular self-assembly of new macrocycles and interaction with biomolecules
 • Role of macrocycles in molecular recognition
 • Biological activity and toxicity of new macrocycles
 • Bioimaging or drug delivery systems based on macrocycles
 • Bio- and chemosensors based on macrocycles

Topic Editors:

Pavel Padnya, Kazan Federal University, Kazan, Russia

Xin Wu, The University of Sydney, Darlington, Australia

Andrea Erxleben, National University of Ireland Galway, Galway, Ireland

Susana Santos Braga, Department of Chemistry, University of Aveiro, Aveiro, Portugal
