In the era of nanoscience, it is known that improving catalytic properties is possible by reducing the size of the catalyst. Nanoparticles present a high surface-area-to-volume ratio, which makes them especially attractive in their use as catalysts due to their high activity, selectivity, and stability. In this sense, the selection of the appropriate synthesis method is essential to control the size, shape, and composition of the nanomaterial, since these factors play a critical role in its functionality.
Thus, nanocatalysts have found applications in photocatalysis for environmental protection; organic synthesis; energy storage; fuel cell; production of biodiesel; medicine; and several more, since new applications are always emerging.
The areas to be covered in this Special Issue include the synthesis and characterization of nanoparticles for catalytic applications. Specifically, we welcome studies on:
- Work related to nanostructured materials for environmental protection.
- Nanocatalysis in chemical and refining processes.
- Work related to the synthesis of nanoparticles with applications in medicine.
- Nanostructured catalysts for industrial applications.
- Work addressing new concepts in nanocatalyst preparation and characterization.
- Studies reporting the use of nanomaterials for energy storage, fuel cells and solar cells.
- Theoretical modeling of nanocatalytic reactions.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
