Special Issue Information
The metal-catalyzed hydrogenation, dehydrogenation, and related reductive functionalization reactions are of fundamental importance to modern synthetic chemistry. These transformations represent economical and “green” alternatives to stoichiometric reactions and are widely applied in the preparation of both commodity and specialty chemical products. Recent developments in this field also addressed many environmental issues, such as the treatment of emerging pollutants and the utilization of carbon dioxide. Moreover, efficient catalytic reductive functionalization reactions open new avenues in synthetic chemistry through the further derivatization of products via cascade/tandem approaches to access new, more complex value-added compounds. Moreover, hydrogenation/dehydrogenation catalysis is considered a promising technology for hydrogen production and related energy storage technologies. The search for efficient catalytic systems for these transformations utilizing abundant and cheap metals as well as the fine tuning of catalysts via the design of new ligands, often allowing for metal–ligand cooperativity, to achieve highly selective catalytic transformations remains one of the main goals in this field.
This Special Issue aims to highlight recent advances in hydrogenation, dehydrogenation, hydrogen transfer, and hydroelementation catalysis using both homogeneous and heterogeneous systems, including applications of these transformations to synthetic and environmental chemistry, carbon dioxide utilization, and energy storage technologies.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Inorganics 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 2000 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.
