For the occasion of the International Symposium on Catalysis and Fine Chemicals 2018 (C&FC2018, December 10-14, 2018, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand), we have decided to organize a Special Issue entitled “Catalysis and Fine Chemicals”. The C&FC originated from Tokyo, Japan in 2001, initially organized by the Catalysis and Fine Chemicals (C&FC) division at the Catalysis Society of Japan (CATSJ). The symposiums were then held in Hong Kong (2004), Singapore (2007), Seoul Korea (2009), Nara, Japan (2011), Beijing, China (2013), and Taipei, Taiwan (2016). This is the 8th C&FC, held in Thailand and organized by PETROMAT (co-organized by Chemical Society of Thailand and CATSJ).
The projected fields in the C&FC symposium to be covered are homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis and organic, organometallic, inorganic, and bioinorganic chemistry. The Special Issue thus covers topics in: (i) Selective catalytic reaction for synthesis of fine chemicals, (ii) new synthetic strategy and chemical processes, (iii) green and sustainable catalytic processes and reaction media, (iv) enhanced atom utilization, (v) precise olefin polymerization, and (vi) industrial catalytic processes. The issue consists of invited papers and submitted papers from the all participants. The final decision will be made by the Special Issue editors through the ordinary reviewing process.
We shall be happy to accept submission of papers with the above topics and we hope that we will be able to receive many outstanding submissions, which will contribute to the creation of an excellent Special Issue in this Journal.
