Special Issue "Molybdenum-, Vanadium-, and Tungsten-Containing Materials for Catalytic Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019.
Molybdenum, vanadium, and tungsten compounds are very interesting and efficient catalysts that are used for a wide range of chemical reactions. The accomplishment of a quite high catalytic activity with relatively low metal loading is a great advantage, generating low-cost and environmentally friendlier processes. Catalysts are used as molecular objects or as supported objects. Catalytic processes containing those elements are of growing interest, notably heterogeneous ones in terms of reuse and recycling.
The Special Issue aims to highlight the recent advances in the development of Mo-, V-, and W-containing catalysts, including coordination complexes, polyoxoanions, metal clusters, or nanoparticles and bulk materials (e.g., mesoporous materials, surfaces, etc.), with the involvement of those elements in the catalytic materials. The emphasis is on the recent trends, including materials processing (synthesis and characterization) with their catalytic applications, from simple reactions with model substrates, to more complex and challenging ones. A mechanistic approach linking the structure with the activity is appreciated.
It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

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 1800 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.
