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.

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