Special Issue "Zeolites and Catalysis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2017)
The field of zeolite catalysis is more exciting than ever. The potential for a vast number of structures, with numerous synthetic and post-synthetic modification routes, has led to a rich variety of materials with tunable catalytic features. Zeolites can be combined with other materials or other zeolites in order to obtain enhanced performance or synergic catalytic behavior between the phases. Outstanding catalytic properties, combined with high stability and an affordable price, have placed zeolites at the forefront of industrial catalysis, playing a crucial role in the worldwide economy and offering a bright future for sustainable development.
Novel characterization methods for zeolites and reactants/intermediates/products, particularly those methods used under reaction conditions (operando), provide valuable information regarding the structure dynamics of the zeolite, coupling it with the mechanism of reaction.
This Special Issue focuses on recent advances in zeolite catalysis, including advances in (1) understanding of the synthetic and post-synthetic modification routes; (2) modelling the catalytic properties and performance in reactions related to the sustainable chemical industry; (3) insights into the reaction pathways occurring on the surface; and (4) methodological approaches to resolve the interplay of structure-dynamics-mechanisms.

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.
