Interests: synthesis; characterization and structure-activity relationship of supported noble metal (Pt,Pd, Au) for oxidation reactions; metal-support interaction in gold catalysts for low-temperature CO and VOCs oxidation; use of gold for hydrogen purification by selective oxidation of carbon monoxide (PROX); development of Pd and Au catalysts for abatement at low temperature of VOCs and methane emitted by mobile sources; synthesis and characterization of bimetallic Ni-Au catalysts for hydrocarbon steam reforming reaction and syngas production; optimization of Co-based catalysts composition and preparation method for Fischer-Tropsch synthesis
The growing importance of the catalysis by gold is nowadays proved by the promising applications in several fields, such as green chemistry, enantioselective synthesis, environmental catalysis, hydrogen production and purification as well. This special issue “New Trends in Gold catalysts” aims to cover the numerous aspects in the use of gold as main active site as well as in the use of small amount of gold as promoting the activity of transition metals catalysts. In details, the following topics will be addressed: synthesis, characterization and structure-activity relationship of supported mono and bi-metallic (Au-M) catalysts for oxidation reactions; metal-support interaction in gold catalysts for low-temperature CO, VOCs and soot oxidation; synthesis of adipic acid as target product for polyamides manufacturing; use of gold for hydrogen purification by selective oxidation of carbon monoxide (PROX) and for hydrogen production (WGSR); development of Au catalysts for abatement at low temperature of VOCs and methane emitted by mobile sources; synthesis and characterization of supported mono- and bimetallic (M-Au) catalysts for methane dry reforming reaction; optimization of Co-based catalysts composition and preparation method for Fischer-Tropsch synthesis; selective hydrogenation of butadienes for olefin streams purification.

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 quarterly journal published by MDPI.
