Carbon catalysts have been used over the last decades for the utilization in several processes. Carbon catalysts consists of metals or metallic compounds supported on carbon materials which role is not only to maintain the catalytic phase in a well dispersed state but also affect the catalytic activity, by means of direct participation in nay of the steps of the reaction mechanism, or by favouring the interaction between active phase and support.
Carbon materials fulfil the properties desirable in a catalyst support such as inertness, towards unwanted reaction, stability, mechanical properties, surface area and porosity, the possibility of being manufacture in different physical form.
This special issue invites significant contributions of different applications of carbon catalyst such as in electrochemical devices, reduction of emissions, in the production of valuable products and in other applications.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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.
