Special Issue "New Catalysts in Chemical Industry, Petrochemical Technologies, and Environmental Protection"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2022.
Interests: catalysis and physical chemistry; photocatalysis; chemical kinetics in condensed phases; chemical radiospectroscopy; chemical methods of energy conversion; non-traditional and renewable energy sources; thermodynamics of non-equilibrium processes
Progressing chemical technologies is significant to sustainable development. The sustainable development of chemical technologies can be generalized including the fields of high-efficiency conversion of heavy oil, green petrochemical catalytic technologies, clean utilization of natural gas, clean energy, environmental protection, etc.
This Special Issue will focus on recent advances in developing new catalysts, new supports of catalysts in chemical, organic synthesis, petrochemical, oil-refining, fuel and energy industries, pharmaceutical, and environment protection.
Original research papers and short reviews addressing all aspects of heterogeneous catalysis from a chemical engineering perspective including catalysts preparation and characterization, reaction kinetics and mechanisms, and catalytic reactors design for implementation in chemical technology.

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 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.
