Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanoscale materials have a nanometer size range (1–1000 nm), and have widespread applications in catalysis. Nanostructured metallic materials (supported or unsupported) exhibit different catalytic activities or selectivities in heterogeneous reactions, because of the variations of nanocrystal size and shape, which result in the changes of exposed metallic atoms and surface structures. Nanoscale metallic oxides can catalyze acidic/basic reactions, oxidation, dehydrogenation, and photocatalytic reactions (used for pollutant abatements or hydrogen generation from water) with an enhanced performance, because of the increasing surface area/volume ratio with the decreasing particle size. The aim of this Special Issue is to cover the recent advances in the preparation, characterization. and applications of nanoscale materials as catalysts, supports, photocatalysts, and electrocatalysts. Full papers, short communications, reviews, or mini-reviews in these areas are all welcome.

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.
