Perovskite, a mixed metal oxide with a general formula ABO3, is a versatile catalyst with numerous applications. Its unique crystal structure, nonstoichiometric oxygen, acid-base property, redox nature, and thermal stability allow perovskites to be effective in oxidations, exhaust abatement, hydrogenation, and even photocatalysis. Although perovskite has been used in heterogeneous catalysis for many years, it wasn’t until 2002 that was commercially implemented as an exhaust abatement catalyst by Daihatsu Motor. Recently, perovskites have shown promised in biomass conversion, e.g., glycerol partial oxidation to syngas. This has stimulated a recent boom in perovskite study by catalyst scientists. The bibliometric analysis (see Figure 1) done on papers related to perovskites from 2002 to 2011 shows a steadily increasing trend. Therefore, to provide a platform for experience exchange, idea sharing, and inspiration, it is our pleasure to present this special issue for the growing research community of perovskite catalysts.
This issue invites contributions dealing with all fields related to perovskite catalysts. Novel approaches in perovskite synthesis, characterization, and its industrial applications are particularly 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 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.
