Interests: Multifunctional mesoporous oxide materials, Novel mesostructured metals and semiconductors, Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs): high efficacy gas storage materials, Controllable preparation of shaped nanoparticles, Intracellular drug delivery system, Graphene functionalization for advanced applications, Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs), Heterogeneous catalysis
Numerous functional metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are being assembled from various metal ions and polytopic bridging ligands. These crystalline MOFs tend to form unique topologically interesting networks. Additionally, MOFs often exhibit robust frameworks with high surfaces and large pore volumes. The confined spaces of MOFs are ideal platforms for a range of new heterogeneous catalytic systems with high selectivity and recyclability. The incorporation of catalytically-active functional moieties into the bridging ligands or generation of open-metal sites are good methods for the preparation of novel catalysts. A simple encapsulation of catalytically-active nanoparticles inside MOF channels is also promising strategy to prepare active catalysts. The scope of this special issue covers all areas of MOF-based catalytic systems.Prof. Dr. Seong Huh
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. Catalysts 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 1300 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.
