Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the 22nd International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry

All participants of ECSOC-22 are welcome to submit the extended work to the Molecules Special Issue "ECSOC".

Electronic conferences on synthetic organic chemistry (ECSOC) are a series of conferences maintained through the internet since 1997, an original initiative by MDPI, and later consolidated with the contribution of the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). Nowadays it constitutes the first and oldest electronic conference in the world. It maintains its character of free participation, with contributions considered as preliminary reports on edge achievements, and registration as a distinctive standard of the world wide web open access character.

It covers different sections of organic synthesis:

A. General Organic Synthesis

B. Bioorganic, Medicinal and Natural Products Chemistry

C. Microwave Assisted Synthesis

D. Polymer and Supramolecular Chemistry

E. Computational Chemistr

F. Ionic Liquids

Call for papers

Dear Colleague,

The Electronic Conferences on Synthetic Organic Chemistry (ECSOC) are a series of conferences that have been held online since 1997. Originally, it was an initiative of MDPI, and was later amalgamated with the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). It now constitutes the longest running electronic conference in the world. It maintains free participation and registration in the true spirit of open access on the World Wide Web. The conference this year will cover a wide range of aspects involved in synthetic organic chemistry. A non-exhaustive list of topics that will be considered comprises:

  1. General Organic Synthesis
  2. Bioorganic, Medicinal and Natural Products Chemistry
  3. Microwave Assisted Synthesis
  4. Polymer and Supramolecular Chemistry
  5. Computational Chemistry
  6. Ionic Liquids

ECSOC22 offers you the opportunity to participate in this international, scholarly conference without having the concern or expenditure of travel. The conference will be completely free of charge—both to “attend”, and for scholars to upload and present their latest work on the conference platform. There will be a possibility to submit selected papers to the journal Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049, Impact Factor: 3.098 (2017) ; 5-Year Impact Factor: 3.268 (2017);

Abstracts (in English) should be submitted by *15 October 2018* online at After the abstract is accepted by the Scientific Committee, the authors will be invited to prepare a full description of their work under the form of a PowerPoint presentation, and to upload it *before 10 November 2018* to ensure there is time for a final check.

We hope you will be able to join this exciting event and support us in making it a success. The 22nd International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry is organized and sponsored by MDPI (, an open access publisher based in Switzerland.

We look forward to receiving your research papers and to welcome you at this 22nd edition of the e-Conference.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions.

Kind regards,

*Dr. Julio A. Seijas Vázquez*
