Nanomaterials have been used unknowingly for thousands of years; for example, gold nanoparticles were used in medicine and to stain drinking glasses. The green synthesis of morphogical varied nanoscale materials using an environmentally favorable technique is of special interest to researchers all over the world. The simple, robust, inexpensive, and environmentally friendly approach for metal nanoparticle synthesis based on the use of biomolecules, plant extracts, microorganism, agricultural waste, sunlight etc. Further, nanoparticles applied on the benefit of human and environment. It includes a wide application in catalysis, sensing, medicine, photothermal therapy, drug career, agriculture, food packaging, environmental remediation and so on.
This special issue of “Catalysts” aims to focuses on the importance of metal nanoparticles and their applications in wide variety of catalysis-from environmental remediation to organic synthesis. We invite researchers of different countries to publish research or review articles on their catalysis related work.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2200 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.
