Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Following the second successful Special Issue on this topic (available here), we are happy to announce a third edition titled “Catalysis in Heterocyclic and Organometallic Synthesis, 3rd Edition”.

In recent decades, diverse methods of catalysis, including transition metal catalysis, organocatalysis, their homogenous and heterogenous versions, as well as biocatalysis, have witnessed an extremely rapid development in a variety of chemical transformations utilized in the chemical, fuel, pharmaceutical and agricultural industries to afford a wide range of products having an impact on daily life. As a result of intensive research, a number of well-established concepts and tools are now available to obtain a deeper insight into the mechanisms of catalytic reactions allowing the development of more and more sophisticated fine-tunable catalytic systems and conditions capable of governing the elementary steps of a multistep transformation to proceed via a rationally designed pathway. Although in the chemistry of heterocyclic and organometallic compounds, representing two large and partly overlapping domains of chemical research, the most efficient, robust, and often environmentally benign synthetic strategies are based on catalysis, there is a constant need to develop further superior systems of higher catalytic activity and specificity and to elaborate the catalytic versions of extensively used stoichiometric organic syntheses with particular regards to asymmetric transformations. In addition to the elaboration and utilization of novel synthetic procedures, in the submitted papers, the structure–reactivity relationships and mechanism of catalytic transformations are also expected to be placed in particular focus, since for the development and design of novel catalytic systems, there is a constant need to obtain deeper insight into catalytic processes.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 2700 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.
