Interests: synthesis; characterization and structure-activity relationship of supported noble metal (Pt,Pd,Au) for oxidation reactions; metal-support interaction in gold catalysts for low-temperature CO and VOCs oxidation; use of gold for hydrogen purification by selective oxidation of carbon monoxide (PROX); development of Pd and Au catalysts for abatement at low temperature of VOCs and methane emitted by mobile sources; synthesis and characterization of bimetallic Ni-Au catalysts for hydrocarbon steam reforming reaction and syngas production; optimization of Co-based catalysts composition and preparation method for Fischer-Tropsch synthesis
Following the success of the previous catalysis training courses, hosted every two years, since 2013, at the LyonTech La Doua scientific campus in Villeurbanne, France, it is our pleasure to announce the next Elitecat 2019, which will be held from 1–5 July 2019. Elitecat is a training course aimed at young researchers, and PhD and post-doctoral students interested in the field of heterogeneous catalysis. The training course will fill in details about the latest developments in catalysis, starting from the main procedures for preparing, characterizing, and testing the catalysts used for different purposes, the tools used for establishing kinetic models, and the kind of reactors where the catalytic reactions proceed. In addition, the training course provides trainees with practical sessions in the laboratory, which would allow for clarifying concepts and learning how experimental data can be efficiently fitted to kinetic models. Moreover, participants in Elitecat 2019 have the opportunity to present their latest results by short oral presentations.
The present Special Issue will feature the works presented at Elitecat 2019, as well as additional contributions in the field of heterogeneous catalysis, ranging from synthesis and characterizations to catalytic applications. In detail, the Special Issue will cover the following topics: (i) new synthetic strategy and chemical processes, (ii) green and sustainable catalytic processes and reaction media, (iii) selective catalytic reactions for the synthesis of fine chemicals, (iv) industrial catalytic processes for environmental catalysis and energy production, and (v) new kinetic models for catalytic data fitting.
Authors with expertise in any of the above topics of catalysis are cordially invited to submit their manuscripts to this Special Issue of Catalysts. Significant full papers and review articles are very welcome.

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.
