Special Issue "Preparation of Catalysts from Renewable and Waste Materials"
A special issue of Catalysts (ISSN 2073-4344).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 October 2019.
According to the recent renewed interest in Circular Economy and Green Chemistry, modern chemistry is developing new catalysts, starting from renewable and waste materials. The materials derived from both industrial and biological sources include red mud, aluminium dross, fly ash, blast furnace slag, rice husk, and various kinds of shell and plants. They afford opportunities in terms of catalysis: (i) direct application as active materials, (ii) use as pre-catalysts, (iii) modification to yield catalytically active phases, and (iv) use as precursors for the synthesis of active catalysts. For some aspects, abundant natural materials (i.e., from vegetables and plants) can be a source of chemicals, but also a precursor of materials derived from petroleum. Submissions in the form of original research papers, reviews, and short communications are encouraged to this Special Issue on “Preparation of Catalysts from Renewable and Waste Materials”.

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.
