Special Issue "Metallic Nanoparticles in Heterogeneous Catalysis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2020).
Interests: controlled size nanoparticles; interfaces; heterogeneous catalysis; molecular level understanding by in situ techniques
Heterogeneous catalysis is the prime mover of the majority of the chemical processes in the chemical industrial world. Environmental concerns also have a need for catalysts with high activity and selectivity. Besides bulk metallic catalysts, supported metallic nanoparticles are the basis of these catalytic systems. Nanoparticles have great advantages that originate from the high surface-to-volume ratio, the special surface concentrations of the different Miller indices planes, the different surface rearrangement and the cell parameters compared to the bulk counterparts. Nanoparticles that are anchored onto the surface of different metallic-oxide surfaces can open up an extra way of tuning catalytic activity and selectivity.
In this Special Issue, we are focusing of the synthesis, characterization and application of selfstanding or supported mono- or multi-metallic nanoparticles in gas or liquid phase heterogeneous catalysis.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.
Assist. Prof. András Sápi
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.
