Special Issue "Catalytic Methods in Flow Chemistry"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2019).
Prof. Dr. Renzo Luisi Website E-Mail
Department of Pharmacy – Drug Sciences, University of Bari “A. Moro” via E. Orabona 4, 70125 – Bari - Italy
Interests: flow chemistry; microreactor technology; organometallic chemistry (lithium, magnesium); carbenoids; boron-, fluorine-, sulfur-chemistry; NMR spectroscopy; molecular dynamics; asymmetric synthesis; heterocyclic chemistry
The chemical industry generates a large variety of products, including (i) basic chemicals, e.g., polymers, petrochemicals, and basic inorganics; (ii) specialty chemicals for crop protection, paints, inks, colorants, textiles, paper and engineering; and (iii) consumer chemicals, including detergents, soaps, etc. Aiming to improve the intensification of the process, chemists have recently established chemical reactions based on catalysis, as well as alternative technologies, such as continuous flow.
The aim of this Special Issue is to cover promising recent research and novel trends in the field of novel catalytic reactions (homogeneous, heterogeneous, and enzymatic, as well as their combinations) in continuous flow chemistry. Recent conversion of starting material issued from petroleum resources or biomass into high-added value chemicals will be reported.

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.
