Easy-separable and reusable heterogeneous acid catalysts have been playing an important role in the production of industrially important chemicals. However, much remains to be done: many heterogeneous catalytic systems are not superior to homogeneous acid catalytic systems in reaction rate and selectivity. Such problems would be solved by the improvement of conventional heterogeneous acid catalysts and processes, and new principles for surface structure, Brønsted and Lewis acid sites would also make breakthroughs in this field. This special issue on heterogeneous acid catalysts highlights recent advances not only in our understanding of catalysts, acid sites and surface structure in solid materials, but also in new possibilities of heterogeneous catalysts for industrial application. The reports on acid catalysis presented in this issue will provide a further understanding about the role of heterogeneous catalyst in environmentally benign chemical production.

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.
