Special Issue in Inorganics: Metal–Oxo Complexes
Enzymes are versatile catalysts in Nature that are able to convert substrates into useful products using environmentally benign reaction mechanisms. There are still many gaps in the understanding of chemical reaction mechanisms of enzymes and research into these topics is broad. In addition, engineers are using the knowledge of enzymatic reaction mechanisms to engineer these natural systems and give them novel functions, e.g. for the synthesis of biofuels or small compounds such as drugs. This topic will cover the latest achievements and work done in the fields of biocatalysis and bioengineering.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
