Heterogeneous catalysis covers a broad range of applications, influencing our daily lives at different levels. The search for efficient and sustainable catalytic processes is a challenging field that is in a state of constant evolution. This Special Issue is oriented to the sustainable applications of heterogeneous catalysis, from the state-of-the-art to the most recent advancements with a special focus on the design of novel materials, including (meso)porous solids, metal and metal oxide nanoparticles, and organic–inorganic hybrids. Reactions and processes of academic and industrial interest will be considered. Original contributions addressing the synthesis and characterization of heterogeneous catalysts, or those devoted to the in-depth understanding of the relationship between surface properties and catalytic performances/reaction mechanism, in the form of full papers or communications, are all welcome. Mini-reviews presenting an overview on the state-of-the-art with projections on future perspectives and trends in this domain will be also 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.
