Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Electrosynthesis has gained increasing research interest in the past decade, which represents an attractive mild synthetic way to effectively alleviate environmental deterioration in a rapidly developing society. This exciting tool has achieved small organic and inorganic molecules, macromolecule pharmaceuticals, and many more valuable chemicals that highly rely on traditional high-energy-input and time-consuming synthesis in the past.

We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the Special Issue “Catalyzing Electrosynthesis” of the journal Catalysts (ISSN 2073-4344).

This Special Issue aims to publish a set of both fundamental and applied research across the cutting-edge catalysts and electrosynthesis areas. In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Carbohydrate (from C1 to C3+) electrosynthesis from CO, CO2;
  • Ammonia electrosynthesis from N2, NO3, NO, etc.;
  • Urea electrosynthesis from CO2 and NH3, NO3, N2, etc.;
  • H2, O2, and H2O2 electrosynthesis from H2O;
  • Organic molecules, pharmaceuticals, and organometallic electrosynthesis;
  • C–H functionalization.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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 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 2200 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.
