Special Issue "Structure and Function of Ceria-Based Mixed Metal Oxides and Supported Transition Metal Oxide Catalysts"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2020).
Ceria -based mixed metal oxides constitute a formidable class of oxygen storage and release materials and their structure/function properties are of topical interest. Pertinent applications include inter alia their function as TWCs (Three Way Catalysts), catalysts for WGS (Water Gas Shift), PROX and reforming reactions, as well as their use in solar reactors for CO2 conversion etc. The art of synthesis and preparation of ceria-based mixed metal oxide solid solutions greatly affects the structure and the defect topology of their anionic sublattices that are -in turn- affecting their behavior.
The structure/activity relationships pertaining to supported transition metal oxide catalysts (e.g., VOx, MoOx,WOx, ReOx etc) on oxidic carriers (e.g., TiO2, Al2O3, ZrO2, SiO2 as well as mixed carriers) continues to attract focused research interest due to their importance for a great number of industrial processes (environmental catalysis, production of chemical commodities etc). Ideas and thoughts that continually have preoccupied or intruded on researchers’ minds are recently being questioned and controverted. Advanced synthesis routes based on molecular level approaches combined with meticulous structural characterization under controlled conditions have recently marked the dawn of a period with new unprecedented findings on structural and structure/function relationship grounds.
This Special Issue aims to gather a collection of articles highlighting some of the recent progress on the selected subjects addressed above.

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 2000 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.
