Interests: antibacterial agents; cation-pi and sigma hole-based protein–ligand complex investigations; the interface of chemistry and art; improving low-income accessibility of hands-on chemical instrumentation-based experiments in analytical chemistry and biochemistry
This Special Issue will include both primary research and review articles covering anti-infective agents discovered in marine organisms. These anti-infective agents may be antibacterial, antifungal, antiprotozoan, antitubercular, and antiviral agents. These marine compounds may directlly interfere with microbial replication, block virulence (e.g., quorum sensing antagonists), or reverse multidrug resistance. Primary research articles must include full characterization (proton NMR, carbon-13 NMR, and high resolution mass spectral data) of all new compounds. Review articles must cite peer-reviewed literature from five years prior to the year of publication, e.g., a 2015 review should cite articles published from 2010-2014.
