Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The preservation of clean air demands detailed scientific research taking into consideration practical conditions. To enhance sustainability, emissions reduction measures focused on the air pollutants (volatile organic compounds (VOCs), polyaromatic compounds (PACs), polychlorinated dioxins and furans (PCDDs/PCDFs), CO, NOx, and soot particles) need, thus, to be researched under practical conditions. These pollutants can be substantially reduced by catalytic exhaust systems and integrated methods.

This Special Issue aims to collect original research papers, reviews, and commentaries focused on the challenges for the catalytic treatment of air pollutants. Submissions are welcome especially (but not exclusively) in the following areas:

- catalytic treatment of VOCs;
- catalytic treatment of CO;
- catalytic treatment of NOx;
- catalytic treatment of Soot;
- catalytic treatment of PACs;
- catalytic treatment of PCDDs/PCDFs;
- innovative processes and reactors for catalytic treatment of air pollutants.

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 1600 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.

Nitrogen oxides (NOx) represent one of the main sources of haze and pollution of the atmosphere as well as the causes of photochemical smog and acid rain. Furthermore, it poses a serious threat to human health. With the increasing emission of NOx, it is urgent to control NOx. According to the different mechanisms of NOx removal methods, this paper elaborated on the adsorption method represented by activated carbon adsorption, analyzed the oxidation method represented by Fenton oxidation, discussed the reduction method represented by selective catalytic reduction, and summarized the plasma method represented by plasma-modified catalyst to remove NOx. At the same time, the current research status and existing problems of different NOx removal technologies were revealed and the future development prospects were forecasted. Full article
