Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Today, water and air pollution are issues of great concern, due to the adverse effects that pollution has on the environment and human health. Therefore, cost-effective and appropriate air-pollution-control and water-treatment technologies must be explored and implemented. Many different approaches have been investigated and, in particular, catalytic processes may play a central role. For this reason, the design of new catalytic systems for the mitigation of environmental pollution is strongly necessary. This Special Issue is focused on “Innovative Catalytic and Photocatalytic Systems for Environmental Remediation”, featuring the state-of-the-art of this field. Research papers related to the synthesis and characterization of novel nanomaterials or nanocomposites and their uses in the removal of pollutants from liquid and gaseous phases are welcome in this Special Issue. Moreover, innovative structured catalysts for different purposes will also be considered.

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.
