In the last few decades, the scientific community has experienced the exciting progress in the area of heterogeneous catalysis which arises mainly from the development of new nanostructured materials that exhibit superior properties compared with traditional catalysts used, e.g. in fine chemicals synthesis, energy sector, and environmental protection. Carbon materials, such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs), carbon nanofibers (CNFs), graphene and its derivatives or activated carbons (ACs) have been found unique catalysts supports. These materials may reveal some catalytic performance but usually are modified by anchoring the metals or metals oxides to form hybrids that combine the distinctive properties of both phases. Recently, carbonized nanoparticles that are derived from nanoscale metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have been found suitable catalysts e.g. in the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR).
The present Special Issue aims to cover recent research progress in the field of synthesis, characterization and the extensive catalytic applications of hybrid materials composed of carbon support (CNTs, CNFs, graphene, activated carbons, and MOF-derived carbons) and metal or metal oxide active phase. Submissions to this Special Issue are welcome in the form of original research papers or short reviews that reflect state of the art in the above-mentioned topics, concerning application of metals/metals oxides–nanocarbons hybrids in thermal catalysis, photocatalysis, electrocatalysis, photoelectrocatalysis, biocatalysis, etc.

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.
