Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

China has achieved important advancements in heterogeneous catalysis and photocatalysis, including the development of catalytic materials, environmental remediation, and sustainable energy production. This Special Issue welcomes both review and original research articles on the aspects of heterogeneous catalysis and photocatalysis, with the emphasis being put on fundamental and applied research related to environment-friendly catalysis in China. Topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Atmospheric pollutant treatment;
  • Catalytic oxidation of carbon monoxide;
  • Catalytic combustion of methane;
  • Heterogeneous catalysis for VOC elimination;
  • Selective catalytic reduction of NOx;
  • Photocatalytic organics degradation;
  • Photocatalytic removal of VOCs;
  • Utilization of carbon dioxide;
  • Hydrogen production from photocatalytic wastewater treatment;
  • Catalysts related to the removal of pollutants;
  • New materials for heterogeneously catalyzed or photocatalytic pollutant removal.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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.
