Special Issue "Supported Materials for Catalytic Application"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018).
Interests: heterogeneous catalysis; CO2 hydrogenation; methanol/DME synthesis; temperature-programmed characterization; oxyfuels
Supported materials represent effective catalysts for many catalytic reactions, including reforming processes, hydrocarbon conversion, hydrotreating, hydrogenation/dehydrogenation, selective oxidation, photocatalysis, pollution abatement, etc. Recent advances in creating hybrid/multifunctional or nanostructured supported materials also provide new possibilities in catalysis. Therefore, research is more and more interested in disclosing the new potentials of these materials for catalysis and the different routes available to tune their electronic states and active sites.
This Special Issue aims to encompass original research work and reviews on supported materials featuring innovative catalytic formulations, methodologies of synthesis, as well as peculiar catalytic applications, characterized by unusual activity-selectivity patterns, as the keys for enhanced energy efficiency, also meeting the pressing needs of sustainability process both from an environmental and economic point of view. The current and future challenges faced by these catalytic materials in terms of fundamental understanding and the development of novel industrial applications are also explored.
On the basis of such an outstanding topic, it is my pleasure to invite you to submit original papers, short communications and reviews for this Special Issue "Supported Materials for Catalytic Applications".Dr. Giuseppe Bonura
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.
