Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This is a Special Issue of Catalysts, with the title Nanostructured Materials and  Nanoparticles as Efficient Catalysts: Design and Mechanism. The plan for this Special Issue to present and discuss recent advances and developments in state-of-the-art nanostructured materials’ and nanoparticles’ work as efficient catalysts, with a special focus on the design and catalytic mechanisms of these materials. Research articles, review articles, as well as short communications are warmly invited.

Recently, most catalytic processes and pollution control processes rely on nanocatalysts at a certain point; research into and the development of state-of-the-art nanocatalysts play a key role in achieving efficient and clean energy systems as well as a sustainable environment. This Special Issue aims to report on developments in the synthesis, characterization, and application of advanced nanostructured materials and nanoparticles for catalytic and photocatalytic applications. Furthermore, research into understanding the mechanisms of catalytic reactions is an important subject. In this Special Issue, we are inviting scientists to share their findings related to efforts for catalytic reactions using advanced nanostructured materials and nanoparticles as efficient catalysts.

Submit your paper and select the Journal “Catalysts” and the Special Issue “Nanostructured Materials and Nanoparticles as Efficient Catalysts: Design and Mechanism” via: MDPI submission system. Please contact the Guest Editor or the journal editor ([email protected]) for any queries. Our papers will be published on a rolling basis and we will be pleased to receive your submission once you have finished it.

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.
