Special Issue "Epoxidation Catalysis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018).
CNR-Istituto di Scienze e Tecnologie Molecolari, Via C. Golgi, 19, 20133 Milano, Italy
Interests: heterogeneous catalysis; inorganic nanosystems applied to catalysis and to synthesis of fine chemicals; sustainable oxidation processes; degradation of hazardous chemicals
The epoxidation reaction of the C=C double bond is one of the most powerful and versatile tools in synthetic chemistry, from the laboratory level up to the industrial scale. It is used to produce bulk chemicals (i.e., ethylene oxide, propylene oxide), functionalized chemical auxiliaries (i.e., epoxidized vegetable oils), as well as high added-value fine chemicals (i.e., epoxidized terpenes). Several oxidants can be used for epoxidation (air, O2, hydrogen peroxide, organic hydroperoxides, peroxyacids) and the choice is linked to the substrate type, the features of the used catalyst, safety, economy, and sustainability of the overall process. The aim of this Special Issue on epoxidation reactions is to provide the reader with trans-disciplinary up-to-date information on different epoxidation systems, paying particular attention to the catalytic aspects of this transformation.

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.
