Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
(Photo)electrocatalytic production of hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2) from water and reduction in greenhouse gas CO2 to value added materials are widely targeted by scientific research and technology for providing clean fuels as well as storing solar energy in the simplest chemical form, namely, the hydrogen–hydrogen bond (H–H).
An efficient strategy that enables high reaction yield is the key element toward commercialization. This Special Issue focuses on innovative strategies for (photo)electrocatalytic water splitting and CO2 reduction.
In this context, introducing novel morphologies and composite materials for enhancing the efficiency and selectivity of reactions is of crucial importance. The Special Issue welcomes research topics based on single atom catalysis and visible active catalysts. The ultimate goal is to strive for a strategy to improve efficiency and stability of the material for (photo)electrocatalytic water splitting and CO2 reduction.
Original works within the scope of this Special Issue in the form of full papers or communications are all welcome. Mini reviews on an overview of the state of the art with outlooks toward future trends in this field of study will also be considered.

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 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.
