Catalysts, heterogeneous or homogeneous, play a central role in present industrial production and will remain crucial for the development of novel processes based on the use of renewable feedstocks and of novel process technologies (e.g. photocatalysis). This issue wants to focus on various aspects of catalytic materials, from their synthesis to the structural characterization including the structure under reactive conditions, from the final application to the development of theoretical models to describe them.
Therefore, manuscripts covering these topics will be suitable for publication in the special issue dedicated to advanced catalytic materials.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
