Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will intentionally provide the latest advances and progresses in functional nanomaterials that may apply to environmental remediation and energy issues. It aims to promote an interdisciplinary understanding in the environmental and energy fields by using different nanomaterials, such as metal oxides, metal non-oxides, and polymer-based hybrids. In addition, the photocatalysis process has played an important role in degrading environmental micropollutants and converting carbon dioxide into useful fuels. Thus, original research papers or short reviews on the material synthesis, application of environment and photocatalysis, and catalytic energy-related issues are welcome for submision in this Special Issue.

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.
