Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Carbon-based materials are employed in many catalytic processes, either as supports or as metal-free catalysts by themselves. Their porosity and surface chemistry are easily tunable, enabling the rational design of carbon-based catalysts, making them suitable for many different catalytic applications, from fine chemical synthesis to environmental processes or the production of energy. Activated carbons, graphitized materials (e.g., carbon xerogels), and several carbon nanostructures, such as carbon nanotubes and nanofibers or graphene, are included among the most common carbon materials used in these sorts of applications.

In this Special Issue, we invite authors to submit original articles and reviews on the synthesis and applications of carbon-based materials in the catalysis.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 2700 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.
