Advances toward increased sustainability require novel approaches and developments that involve enhanced performance and value in association with a reduced environmental impact. These demands provoked the launch of novel synthetic methodologies, and continuous-flow chemistry has emerged as an enabling tool to accelerate, integrate, simplify, scale up, and automatize chemical reactions, in combination with an inherently safer and ‘greener’ nature over conventional batch-based protocols. Over the past few years, it has been repeatedly demonstrated that flow chemistry and catalysis constitute an ideal match for the sustainable synthesis of a variety of valuable products. Either homogeneous or heterogeneous catalytic reactions can greatly be facilitated by virtue of the technical advances of continuous flow reaction technology, and this is especially true for reactions involving gases, hazardous substances, and reactive intermediates, as well as for photo- and electrocatalytic transformations.
This Special Issue will focus on recent research on ‘Continuous-Flow Catalysis’ and welcome original research papers, reviews, and commentaries from the field. The potential topics include organo-, organometallic- and biocatalysis, various metal-catalyzed reactions, photo- and electrocatalysis, and catalytic reactions involving gases, by applying either homogenous or heterogeneous catalysts in flow systems.Dr. Sándor B.

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.
