The catalytic applications of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) have been growing exponentialy in recent years due to their excellent characteristics of high porosity, chemical versatility, and tailorable design of catalytic active sites. In order to improve mechanical, thermal or chemical stability under reaction conditions, the development of hybrid forms of MOFs with other materials, such as silicoaluminates, carbon, polymers, nanoparticles, etc., is growing extremely fast, given the improved properties compared to those of bulk parent MOFs. Therefore, a compilation of the latest advances in the field would be useful to connect interested authors and readers. This Special Issue aims to cover recent and emerging strategies for the synthesis and catalytic applications of MOF hybrid materials, focusing on the aspects that drive present and future research, from synthesis of hybrid materials to their applications in chemical, environmental or energy-related catalysis or other surface or confined chemistry phenomena involving relevant chemical transformations of value-added molecules. For authors, this issue will be a good opportunity to publish their original research after peer review by expert researchers of hybrid porous solids and catalysis for a sustainable chemistry. Review articles by experts in such fields of research are also strongly encouraged to be submitted for publication in this Special Issue.

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. Molecules 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.
