Water is a basic resource that is necessary for all living beings on the planet. However, the scarcity and contamination of water means that millions of people have limited access to it. Water pollution may occur through the introduction of chemicals into water bodies as a result of various human activities. Any amount of chemicals pollutes the water, regardless of the harm they may pose to human health and the environment.
The focus of this Special Issue is to provide a general overview of the main concepts and current advances in the environmental catalysis field, including the use of catalytic processes as alternative treatment methods for aqueous pollutants, such as pesticides, herbicides and numerous industrial chemicals, with regard to water remediation. Original research papers and short reviews addressing the synthesis and characterization of new heterogeneous catalysts, the influences of different operating parameters and reactor types, the reaction kinetics and the mechanisms and identification of intermediates are invited for submission.

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.
