Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Dipartimento di Scienze Molecolari e Nanosistemi, Via Torino 155, 30172 Mestre Venezia, Italy.
Interests: nanostructured materials; multi-component oxide systems with controlled porosity and morphology; environmental/energy catalysis
Silica and silica-based materials have been of paramount importance in the field of catalysis for some decades and have been widely used both as catalysts and catalytic supports in a large variety of processes. As a matter of fact, amorphous, mesoporous, and zeolitic silica-based materials give rise to a vast array of catalytically active materials, as they can be functionalized on the surface, can incorporate heteroatoms in the structures or nanoparticles and organic molecules inside the pores, and their textural and morphological properties can be tuned depending on the application. Therefore, these materials are considered to have excellent versatility in the field of catalysis.
This Special Issue focuses on recent advances in silica and silica-related materials with applications in catalysis, mainly catalytic and photocatalytic applications of great environmental and/or industrial interest.
We invite you to submit manuscripts for this Special Issue, including communications, full papers, and reviews, that take into account any of the previously described aspects.

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.
