Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Following the successful preparation of a series of PdPt nanoparticles, it was found that their shape and size could be controlled by simply varying the concentration of cetyltrimethylammonium chloride at high temperatures. Both spherical and multi-pod NPs demonstrated electrochemical properties in the ethanol oxidation reaction; however, multi-pod PdNPs exhibited superior activities due to their high surface areas and surface energies. This work is expected to be applicable in the development of new fuel cells for the alcohol oxidation reaction.

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.
