In recent decades, single-atom catalyst (SAC), metal−organic framework (MOF) and covalent organic framework (COF) materials have brought about broad interest in regard to their catalytic applications. SACs exhibit a high atomic utilization and specific activity due to their single active site. With the help of recent advances in characterization techniques and theoretical simulations, numerous SACs have been reported to hold excellent activity and selectivity in various chemical reactions. MOFs consisting of metal ions and organic ligands have shown an unprecedented structural diversity. Due to their intrinsic nature, MOFs can act as hosts for the incorporation of metal nanoparticles, or as precursors for the manufacture of SACs, carbon-based materials and those active in catalysis, energy conversion and storage processes, offering great opportunities for the design of functional materials. COFs have expanded the scope of reticular synthesis from MOFs to purely organic counterparts, possessing advantages such as a large surface area, structure tunability, high porosity and excellent stability when directly utilized as catalysts or as support for constructing catalysts. Therefore, we invite the scientific community to contribute to this Special Issue in the form of research or review articles exploring SAC, MOF and COF materials with desirable properties for catalysis, energy conversion and storage.

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 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. Catalysts is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2200 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.
