Special Issue "Recent Advancements in Polymer-Supported Catalysis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2016)
The need to improve both the efficiency and environmental acceptability of industrial processes is a driving force towards the development of heterogenized catalysts. The immobilization of the catalytic species on a solid support offers the possibility, not only to facilitate the work up and the isolation of the product, but also to accomplish the recovery and the recycle of the (precious) catalyst. Furthermore, the incorporation of supported catalysts in a flow system allows to enlarge the general applicability of flow chemical processes and to speed up the transition from the laboratory-based chemistry to the production scale. The present Special Issue, “Recent Advancements in Polymer-Supported Catalysis”, aims to collect and to disseminate some of the most significant and recent contributions in the highly interdisciplinary field of immobilized achiral and chiral catalysts.

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. Molecules 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 1800 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.
