Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Environmental concerns have been great threats to the development of human beings across the world. The preservation of the environment has attracted great attention in recent years. Numerous efforts have been dedicated to the research and development of novel catalysts for environmental catalysis, which is considered to be a promising strategy to this challenge. Advanced catalysts play a key role in the field of environment protection, such as emission control, solid waste treatment, water purification, clean energy conversion, and so on. Nevertheless, the development of low-cost, efficient, and stable catalysts with tunable structures for environmental catalysis remains a challenge.

This Special Issue will mainly comprise research on advanced catalysts for environmental catalysis. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following: emission control, solid waste treatment, water purification, clean energy conversion, biomass conversion, CO2 conversion and utilization, and hydrogen production. All studies within the scope of this Special Issue, including original research papers, review articles, short communications, and perspective articles, are invited for submission.

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. 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 2700 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.
