Among the most popular processes in organic chemistry for carbon–carbon (C-C) bond formation, the Suzuki–Miyaura cross coupling reaction permits to produce various industrial chemicals for pharmaceutical, drug, agrochemical, and polymer companies. Recently, promising alternatives to improve and expand the scope of this process are being made based on renewable resources, energy efficiency, atom economy, less-hazardous chemical steps, safer (least toxic) solvents, auxiliaries and alternative technologies.
The aim of this Special Issue is to cover promising recent research and novel trends in the field of Suzuki–Miyaura, carbon–carbon, bond-forming processes using various homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts under mild experimental conditions compatible with many functional groups. The transformations may use: (i) fossil or bio-based compounds/reagents either in a sequential way or in a one-pot combined synthesis; (ii) mono- or biphasic system either in a fossil solvent or in eco-friendly media (e.g., water, ionic liquids, deep eutectic, critical fluids, etc.); and (iii) conventional batch chemistry or new ambitious technologies using flow chemistry, microwaves, microreactors, nanocatalysts, and, more remarkably, novel combinations of these technologies. Different aspects of Suzuki–Miyaura cross coupling reaction, such as supported or unsupported catalysts, with or without ligands, coupling of non-activated substrates, catalyst recycling and mechanisms would also be of great interest.

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 2000 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.
