Over the last two decades, the research on 1D and 2D materials has expanded rapidly. It is up to date led by carbon nanotube and graphene research but complimented by other hexagonal lattice materials such as boron nitride, transition metal dichalcogenides and many more. All of these materials are synthesized via processes that crucially require catalysts to enable and control production, and enhance production rates. The size and composition of catalysts, treatment or functionalization done, their production and delivery methods etc. determine the reaction kinetics and direction. The final product may either still retain catalyst particles or be purified thereof – in either case, the resultant material’s properties will be affected significantly. In this special issue, the scope is on ‘Catalysts in 1D and 2D materials – Their role in synthesis, properties and applications’. The issue will cover the whole bandwidth from the catalysts’ role for synthesis – the effects of different catalyst sources, non-iron catalysts, control of catalyst size, on-substrate or substrate-free catalyst systems, pre-synthesis or in-situ catalyst production, up to their role as residue in the final material – their effects on the material’s physical properties, characterization methods, and processes for their removal. Computational studies on catalysts within the above scope are also welcome.

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.
