Interests: design and synthesis of novel stable monodisperse and multimetallic nanoparticles; mechanistic studies to monitor reduction rate and growth of metal nanoparticles; selective oxidation of organic compounds; biomass transformation to fine chemicals and fuels; photocatalytic studies
In recent decades, a wide variety of bimetallic catalysts have been reported for a range of catalytic applications for arrange of reactions, including, oxidation, hydrogenation, hydrogenolysis, and reforming reactions. The use of bimetallic catalysts has shown tremendous development, not only for conventional petroleum refineries, but also for newly proposed bio-refineries, where the fuels and chemicals are essential for a modern and green industrial society. The challenge of designing bimetallic catalysts with controlled properties in terms of size, shape, choice of support and characterising with the proper characterization techniques, is still one of the highest priorities in academia and the industrial sector.
We invite the scientific community to submit their contributions, in the form of original research articles and review articles that seek an excellent interaction between bimetallic catalysts and their applications in synthesis and catalysis. We are particularly interested in articles describing 1) the design of bimetallic catalysts, 2) the study of bimetallic catalysts with in situ and ex situ spectroscopic techniques, 3) computational modeling and simulation of bimetallic catalysts, and 4) the application of bimetallic catalysts in catalysis and energy.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Synthesis of bimetallic catalysts
- Characterization of bimetallic catalysts
- Utilization of bimetallic catalysts in catalysis, including solar energy, chemical transformation, and energy production

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.
