Academia and industry interests are in search of alternative energy sources that might more efficiently contribute to the mitigation of global warming caused by the increase in greenhouse gases generated by the use of fossil fuels as a predominant energy source. Among the main gases involved in the greenhouse effect, carbon dioxide contributes most to the total greenhouse gases. The valorization of carbon dioxide coming from a plethora of industrial processes has great environmental and industrial impacts, not only for the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, but also for the production of chemicals and fuels, as well as the deployment of green industrial processes. Chemical reactions have been exploited for the conversion of carbon dioxide to a wide range of high-added-value products following different approaches; for example, catalysis, electrocatalysis, photocatalysis, and photoelectrocatalysis. In this Special Issue of C—Journal of Carbon Research, we invite authors to submit original communications, full papers, and reviews on consolidate and novel insights and applications of carbon materials for the valorization of carbon dioxide to chemicals and fuels.

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. C 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) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 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.
