Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

For decades, catalytic reaction has been widely adopted in many fields and applications, ranging from hydrogenation, semi-hydrogenation, chemical synthesis, to pollutant (such as CO2 and methane) mitigation. It has attracted considerable attention from researchers worldwide due to the complex transport phenomena and reactions involved. Despite the extensive studies on catalytic reaction that have been reported, though, further studies are required to elaborate on the underlying physicochemical mechanisms of the reaction and to expedite the development of a catalytic reactor for industrial applications.

This Special Issue aims at compiling the best papers on the development and investigation of a catalytic reactor for industrial applications. Hence, we cordially invite you to contribute to this Special Issue. We welcome both experimental and computational studies. Topics of interest for this Special Issue include but are not limited to:

  • Design of catalytic reactors for specific industrial applications;
  • Performance enhancement and optimization of catalytic reactors;
  • Technoeconomic and life cycle analysis of catalytic reactors.

For inquiries regarding this Special Issue, please contact Dr Agus P Sasmito ([email protected]).

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.
