Special Issue "Catalysts for Oxidative Destruction of Volatile Organic Compounds"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018)
Prof. Dr. Stuart H. Taylor
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are a wide ranging class of compounds that are released into the atmosphere from many sources all around the world. The emission of anthropogenic VOCs if of particular concern, as many are harmful and also contribute to deleterious atmospheric chemistry. A number of different technologies have been developed to control VOC emissions, but one of the best is catalytic oxidation. The incorporation of a catalyst into the oxidation process introduces a number of advantages, such as, the operating temperature is decreased, NOX emissions are reduced and VOCs can be removed to very low levels. The performance of the catalyst is critical in the application, and often it is required to operate under varying conditions of effluent composition and concentration. Many catalysts have been used for VOC oxidation, but there is still a need for catalysts with improved performance, and capable of operating over a suitably wide range of conditions. This special issue will focus on the latest developments in catalytic oxidation of VOCs and will take into account many aspects of the topic, including catalyst synthesis, characterisation, performance and mechanism.

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 1300 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.
