Chemical synthesis applying green chemistry principles addresses the future challenges of working with chemical processes and products by exploring novel reactions that can maximize the desired products and minimize by-products, designing new materials and catalytic routes that can simplify operations in chemical transformations, and seeking greener operating conditions.
This Special Issue is aimed at covering novel, emerging and promising strategies for the development of new metal-complex-based catalysts and of improved sustainable catalytic processes by using such catalysts based on metal complexes. In the development of new catalysts and catalytic methods discussions of the fundamental issues of sustainability, efficiency and selectivity are also very welcome.
Submissions to this Special Issue on “Green Catalysts Based on Metal Complexes” are very welcome in the form of original research papers or short reviews that reflect the state of research in the field.
The potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Homogeneous catalysis
- Supported catalysis
- Metal-complex-based catalysts
- Catalysis in non-conventional conditions
- Catalysis in aqueous media
- Electro- or photo-catalysis
- Asymmetric catalysis
- Bio-inspired catalysis
- Cooperative catalysis

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. Crystals 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 1400 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.
