Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Due to the negative impacts of fossil fuels and the high pollution of air, soil, and water, environmental preservation is one of the most important challenges for the scientific community. In this context, biomass as a renewable feedstock has been gaining importance in order to meet the global need for fuels and chemicals from sustainability perspectives. Studies on heterogeneous catalysts applied in bio-energy, biomass, and environmental depollution are in dynamic growth. Several types of heterogeneous catalysts (hybrid materials, supported metal oxides, perovskites, zeolites, etc.) have been developed and applied on different fields such as clean energy production, biomass valorization, wastewater treatment, and air depollution.
This Special Issue will collect quality papers about the synthesis and application of materials for energy and environmental applications.
The collected articles will emphasize the surface and structural properties of these heterogeneous catalysts, and focus on the applicability of the materials in the fields of energy, biomass, and environmental preservation. Studies concerning synthesis methods, material characterization, and reaction mechanisms are also welcome.
We are pleased to invite you to submit manuscripts for this Special Issue on Heterogeneous Catalysts for Energy and Environmental Applications, in the form of research papers, communications, letters, and review articles. We look forward to your participation in this Special Issue of Materials.

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. 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 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.
