Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry is delighted to announce a call for papers for its latest themed issue on:
Biocatalysis: Natural and biologically inspired synthetic enzymes
Guest Editors: Scott Silverman and Douglas Mitchell (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA)
Deadline for Submission: 15 February 2017
|OBC offers fast decisions and publication (average time from receipt to first decision for peer reviewed articles is 12 days for communications and 19 days for papers).

Biocatalysis includes a range of topics related to catalysis by molecules obtained or derived from biology. This issue will cover the following topics:
1. Study of naturally occurring biological catalysts (protein enzymes and ribozymes)
Research in OBC is published as communications (for urgent work – up to 5 pages in length) or full papers. There is also the opportunity to write a Perspective or Review article for the issue, and if you would be interested in this please let us know beforehand.
