Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Modern societies rely heavily on various energy sources for daily life. Despite significant advances in scientific and technological research, more than 80% of industries are still dependent on traditional materials for their large-scale production. Therefore, the development of novel materials is essential for industrial and academic research, as these are rapidly emerging areas for energy and environmental applications. For this special issue of Applied Sciences, titled “Novel Materials in Catalysis and Adsorption Processes”, we invite novel and advanced functional materials for diverse catalytic, adsorption, energy, and environmental applications. These materials can range from nanomaterials, metal catalysts, organic–inorganic hybrid materials, metal-supported polymers, functionalized carbon materials, and porous materials. We also highly encourage submissions in other domains of research.

All types of original research articles, mini reviews, and reviews are welcome in this Special Issue. Research areas may include the following topics, but are not limited to:

  • Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), covalent organic frameworks (COFs), organic–inorganic hybrid materials, and various other types of porous materials for energy and environmental applications;
  • All types of electrocatalysts and catalytic transformations (e.g., water splitting, oxygen evolution, hydrogen evolution, CO2 reduction, and various catalytic chemical conversions);
  • Nano- and/or functional material development for various organic catalytic transformations (e.g., Suzuki–Miyaura, Heck, and chiral catalytic transformations);
  • Advanced material development for diverse gas molecule capture and small molecule separations (e.g., CO2 capture; CH4 storage; flue gas separations; CO2/N2, O2/N2, etc., separations);
  • Synthesis and characterization of various advanced materials for industrial and academic applications;
  • Theoretical calculation of advanced materials for diverse energy and environmental applications.

We look forward to receiving your submissions.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
