Catalytic carbonylation reactions are the most important processes for the direct introduction of the carbonyl group into an organic substrate, and are of primary importance in both industry and academia. Thanks to the development of novel and more efficient and selective catalytic systems during the last decades, carbonylation reactions have allowed researchers to synthesize a plethora of functionalized molecules (heterocycles, in particular) under mild reaction conditions and with high chemo-, regio-, and stereoselectivity.
This Special Issue scope is devoted to the latest advancements in this exciting area of synthetic Chemistry. Both original research papers and reviews are welcomed. The scope is broad and may include the elaboration of novel and more performing catalysts, including heterogenous catalysts, as well as the development of new carbonylation processes in conventional and/or nonconventional solvents for the synthesis of products of industrial interest and of fine chemicals, including bioactive compounds.

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 1800 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.
