Special Issue "Recent Developments in the Medicinal Chemistry of Pyrroles"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2021.
Interests: drug design; synthesis of new potential bioactive compounds in the field of anticancer, antiviral and antiparasitic agents; structure–activity relationship study; organic synthesis
Pyrrole is a heterocyclic ring widespread in biologically active natural products and synthetic molecules. Pyrrole-based compounds exhibit a wide spectrum of bioactivity making such heterocyclic core a privileged scaffold and a versatile pharmacophore in medicinal chemistry. Due to their biological potential, pyrroles have gained great attention and they have been successfully used in the development of new derivatives. Some drugs containing pyrrole moiety are already available on the market while the rest are under clinical trials.
In this Special Issue, authors are invited to submit original research articles, reviews, and short communications exploring recent advances in pyrrole-based medicinal chemistry. Topics of interest include but are not limited to antiviral, anticancer, antiprotozoal, antitubercular, antioxidant, and enzyme inhibiting activities.

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 special issue 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. Pharmaceuticals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
