Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to participate in a Special Issue dedicated to the Design, Synthesis and Applications of Homogeneous/Heterogeneous Oxidation Catalysts. The current Special Issue aims to describe the development of new transition-metal compounds and their use as homogeneous/heterogeneous oxidation catalysts. Catalysis, one of the pillars of green chemistry, can lead to more sustainable processes for the production of compounds that can be used as commodity chemicals or high-value chemicals.

The broad scope of this Special Issue will include works focused on the development of new strategies for the preparation of inorganic/organometallic transition-metal compounds with catalytic properties for oxidation reactions. There is also interest in theoretical studies aimed at shedding light on the mechanism of action of the catalysts.

We welcome in this Special Issue both experimental and theoretical works related to the development of new compounds that can act as catalysts in oxidation reactions. The topics of this Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:

  • Homogeneous transition metal catalysts;
  • Heterogeneous transition metal catalysts;
  • Kinetic study of transition metal-catalyzed processes;
  • Computational research on transition metal-containing catalysts.

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 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.
