Special Issue Information
Microporous zeolites and nanoporous materials are important from the academic and industrial research point of view. These inorganic materials have found application as catalysts in several industrial processes in the field of oil refinery, petro-chemical reactions, fine chemicals, drug discovery and pharmaceutical synthesis, exhaust emission control for stationary and mobile engines, and industrial waste water treatment. The reasons for such versatile applications in several industrial processes are the unique properties of microporous zeolites and nanoporous materials, such as uniform pores, channel systems, shape selectivity, resistance to coke formation, thermal and hydrothermal stability. Furthermore, the possibility to tune the amount and strength of Brønsted and Lewis acid sites and the crystal size and to introduce modifications with transition and noble metals are the key to the successful design of efficient, highly selectivity, and stable catalysts. The Special Issue of “Microporous Zeolites and Nanoporous Materials: Synthesis, Characterization and Applications in Catalysis” invites original research papers on the following topics:
- Novel zeolite and nanoporous materials synthesis
- Advanced technology for catalyst preparation
- Design of catalytic active sites
- Transition and noble metal modifications
- Nanoporous materials crystal engineering
- Physico-chemical catalyst characterization
- Catalytic applications: Petro-chemicals, Environmental catalysis; Biodiesel, Biofuels from renewables; Fuels and Chemicals from biomass

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 2200 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.
