Special Issue "Preparation of Metal Nanoparticles and Their Application in Catalysis"
A special issue of ChemEngineering (ISSN 2305-7084).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 June 2019

Catalysis is useful in the area of synthetic chemistry for performing classical reactions under milder conditions with dramatically enhanced yields and shorter reaction times. In the past two decades, numerous kinds of metal nanoparticles that have been prepared by various chemical and physical methods have been developed, and metal nanoparticles have been demonstrated to be efficient catalysts for various reactions. The reactivity of metal nanoparticles is affected by several factors such as particle size, the shape of the nanoparticles, and stabilizers, etc. In addition, unique reactivity has been confirmed in the case of multimetallic nanoparticles.
The present Special Issue focuses on recent research in the preparation and catalytic application of metal nanoparticles. Research topics may include (but are not limited to): soluble metal nanoparticles, colloids, heterogeneous metal nanoparticles, nano-alloys, core-shell particles, the understanding of reaction mechanism, and the search for original and relevant catalytic activities.
Both original research and review papers are welcome for possible publication in this issue.

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. ChemEngineering is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. 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.
