Current environmental requests encourage the production of molecules through sustainable and environmentally friendly processes requiring the design of new catalytic systems. The synthesis of “hybrid catalysts” is a part of these new concepts based on combined biological and chemical structuration. Hybrid materials are composites of organic and inorganic constituents from the nanometer to the molecular level. Hybrid materials provide extended properties due to the synergetic effects of the organic and inorganic components regarding the initial single original phases. New efficient and eco-responsible hybrid materials are increasingly generated for catalytic applications, as they could be the key to success for more selective biomass valorization. In this context, mixing the “best” of each catalysis (chemical and enzymatic) opens up new horizons. In this Special Issue, we will mainly focus on works dealing the hybrid materials based on the combination of chemical and enzymatic catalysts for catalytic reactions, such as photocatalysis, reduction or oxidation reactions, electrocatalysis or any catalytic transformation to target chemical compounds or key platform molecules.

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 papers will be 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 2000 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.
