Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The recent developments in areas orbiting around chemical engineering, such as material science, spectroscopy and computer science, are thrusting a new era of environmentally friendly processes and products with much better intensification capabilities. At the core, heterogeneous catalysts still play a leading role in those processes, but as more active materials are being used, their intrinsic stability and reusability cannot be overruled. Indeed, the “catalyst deactivation and regeneration” are of the uttermost importance for attaining an economically viable, yet sustainable chemical industry.

This workshop aims to renovate the interest in the field by bringing together researchers working in centered and transversal areas. The new techniques, catalysts and processes augur a new frontier for “catalyst deactivation and regeneration” that we hope to tackle in this workshop.

The Guest Editors welcome any potential work to be submitted for consideration.

Best regards

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.
