The iCAT2018 is a biennial international conference on catalysis that is jointly organized by Malaysian Catalysis Society, Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Universiti Putra Malaysia, and Catalysis Science and Technology Research Centre (PutraCAT) from 13th to 15th November 2018. The conference is organized to gather representatives from researchers, academics in this region, and industrial communities to exchange information and ideas, and to find mutual ground for developing new and improved catalytic methods to solve the challenges of today and in the (near) future in our chemistry-based societies. Authors with expertise in any topic of catalysis are cordially invited to submit their manuscripts to this Special Issue of Catalysts. The topic areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
1. Catalytic Mechanisms
* Spectroscopic and Visualizing Characterizations
* Surface Chemistry, Reaction Kinetics, and Mechanisms
* Molecular Simulation and Theoretical Modelling
* New Concepts for Catalysis;
2. Catalytic Materials
* Nanostructured Catalytic Materials
* Micro- and Mesoporous Catalytic Materials
* Novel Design and Synthetic Approaches;
3. Catalysis for Energy
* Energy Storage Materials and Devices
* Efficient Utilization of Fossil Sources
* Clean Energy Conversion: Electrocatalysis/Fuel Cell
* Biomass Conversion
* Photocatalysis for Hydrogen Production;
4. Environmental Catalysis
* Automotive Exhaust Cleanup
* Water Pollution Control
* Updating and Utilization of Waste;
5. Catalysis for Chemical Synthesis
* Green Synthesis
* Fine Chemicals and Pharmaceutical
* Selective Oxidation and Hydrogenation;
* Integration of Heterogeneous and Homogeneous
* Organic Catalysis
* Biometric Catalysis
* Industrial Catalysis;
7. General 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.
