Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue of Molecules dedicated to Homogeneous Catalysis will have a broad focus on many aspects of homogeneous catalysis, comprising exploratory studies for new catalysts, ligands and reactions, mechanistic studies, laboratory and industrial applications concerning large-scale and small-scale markets. Homogeneous catalysis owes its development to bulk chemistry using as starting materials petrochemicals such as alkenes, carbon monoxide, methanol and oxygen. In this area both the introduction of new reactions and new catalysts continues to be of great value. In the last decades the number of new reactions and catalysts invented for organic syntheses exceeds the number of reactions for bulk chemicals by orders of magnitude. There is hardly any multistep synthesis that does not involve a palladium or ruthenium catalyzed step! This special issue will highlight all areas of current and future interest.
