Special Issue "Catalysis Applied to Biomass—Toward Sustainable Processes and Chemicals"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 July 2016)
Prof. Dr. Christophe LEN, FRSC
We are pleased to announce the new Special Issue of the “Catalysis Applied to Biomass – Toward sustainable processes and chemicals”– CABiomass 2016 (to be held in Compiègne, France). This event will provide a highly interactive platform for relevant experts from the French and international biomass and catalysis sectors to identify chemical and technological project ideas. This meeting also provides an excellent opportunity for experts to establish competitive consortia that can lead to collaborative projects, potential applications, and innovation in the biorefinery sector.
The conference will focus on the following key areas:
- novel catalytic reactions (homogeneous, heterogeneous and enzymatic as well as their combinations) applied to bio-based compounds or using bio-based reagents, either in a sequential way or in a one-pot combined synthesis
- novel catalytic reactions (homogeneous, heterogeneous and enzymatic as well as their combinations) using green solvents (e.g., water, ionic liquids, deep eutectic, critical fluids, etc.)
- new ambitious technologies using flow chemistry, enzymes, microwaves, microreactors, nanocatalysts and more remarkably novel combinations between these technologies
A Special Issue will be produced relating with CABiomass–2016. It is our pleasure to invite you to contribute an original research paper or a review article for this Special Issue. Papers can detail the work you present at CABiomass–2016. The due date for submissions will be June 30, 2016.
Thank you for your contribution.

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.
