Air pollution has been posing serious and extensive threats to human health, ecology, and even the economy. While various air pollution control technologies have been developed, catalysis represents one of the most practical and efficient methods to mitigate the negative impacts of air pollutants. Specifically, catalytic oxidization and reduction processes have become key to eliminating the emissions of gaseous pollutants. As catalysts—especially heterogeneous catalysts—play crucial roles in these catalytic reactions of air pollution control, the design, development, and fabrication of efficient and advantageous catalysts are focuses in environmental chemical engineering to offer a sustainable solution to control air pollution. Thus, this Special Issue is seeking original works that describe recent advances and efforts in designing and fabricating novel catalysts for air pollution control and elucidating relationships between characteristics and catalytic activities of catalysts to offer insights into catalysis science and materials technology.
We invite articles that address new advances in air pollution control technologies. We welcome the submission of works on topics including but not limited to the following for this Special Issue: the development of catalysts for oxidation processes of air pollutants (e.g., VOC, soot, etc.), the development of catalysts for reduction processes of air pollutants (e.g., NOx), catalytic indoor air quality control technologies, emissions and control technologies for vehicles, and integrated pollution control for CO2 and other air pollutants.

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.
