Special Issue "Enabling Technologies toward Green Catalysis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 July 2017).

Department of Drug Science and Technology, University of Turin, Turin 10125, Italy
Interests: enabling chemical technologies; transition metal catalysis; organic reactions; C-C coupling; C-H activations; green chemistry; sustainable processes; plant extraction; process intensification
Although, in the last two decades, the 12 principles of green chemistry have become extremely fashionable, the development of scalable protocols of green catalysis showed a certain inertia with a growing gap between academia and industry. Current organic synthesis requires both innovative catalysts and suitable technologies to address the rules of green chemistry and the goal of process intensification. Ultrasound, hydrodynamic cavitation, microwaves, ball milling, flow chemistry and other non-conventional technologies may dramatically enhance chemical conversions, cutting down reaction times and energy consumption. Green catalysis is a holistic concept that requires enabling technologies as irreplaceable tools for an efficient physical activation. This Special Issue aims to highlight how properly harness all the new technologies and better integrate all disciplines for a modern green catalysis.

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.
