Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is a continuation of the previous Special Issue, “Advanced Catalytic Material for Water Treatment”, following its great success.

Modern urbanization and industrialization have resulted in the rapid and significant emission of non-biodegradable wastewaters. The emerging contaminants in these wastewaters, such as persistent organics, pharmaceuticals, disinfection byproducts and endocrine disruptors, cannot be degraded in conventional wastewater treatment processes. The adverse result of this is reflected in the worldwide detection of these emerging pollutants in natural water bodies, posing a great threat to human health and ecological systems. In recent decades, the demand for clean water has promoted the rapid development of advanced catalytic technologies. Catalytic oxidation offers the opportunity to directly detoxify and mineralize nonbiodegradable pollutants for deep water purification. Catalytic oxidation holds the great potential to advance water and wastewater treatment and improve the efficient removal of refractory pollutants; indeed, green, inexpensive and sustainable catalysts and novel catalytic processes are greatly desired. Therefore, this Special Issue of Catalysts aims to provide an overview of innovative findings in the design of novel advanced catalysts, the development of new catalytic processes and the recycling of raw materials, etc., for water and wastewater treatment. Additionally, the investigation of pilot or even large-scale applications will be of special interest. We would like to invite you to share your latest research with the scientific community by submitting your research and review papers to this Special Issue, entitled “Advanced Catalytic Material for Water Treatment, 2nd Edition”.

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.
