In the domain of synthetic organic chemistry, catalysts play a crucial role in the synthesis of new molecules of diverse interests. A vast array of researchers involves exploring the molecules that stimulate organic transformations. The scope of catalysis in chemistry is reasonably comprehensive. The term catalysis was first proposed by Jöns Jakob Berzelius in 1835. Since its inception, Paul Sabatier discovered that a trace amount of Nickle metal can assist the addition of hydrogen to olefinic bond. This remarkable discovery revolutionized the field of catalysis. Over the past several decades, huge efforts have been devoted to establishing the utility of the wide range of metal, non-metal, and small organic molecules in triggering organic transformations exhaustively. Despite the spectacular successes in the catalysis process, innovative catalytic systems are highly demanding.
In this regard, this Special Issue on “Catalytic Organic Transformations/Organic Synthesis” offers an opportunity to researchers to submit their scientific output. Review articles, original research manuscripts, and communication articles featuring the role of catalysts in the following domain will be considered: (i) biocatalysts in organic synthesis; (ii) molecular catalysis in the synthesis of bioactive molecules; (iii) transition-metal-catalyzed synthesis and green synthesis in organic and medicinal chemistry; (iv) (heterogeneous) photocatalysis; and (v) metal-salts-catalyzed reactions.

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.
