Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Catalysts redesigned or restructured in nanodimensional forms have shown interesting properties that could enhance their performance and stability. A concerted effort in nanocatalyst design, understanding and development will be crucial in ensuring a sustainable future, when fossil-based energy resources depletion and significant environmental polutions continue to challenge humanity with energy, air and water issues. Industries and governments are on a constant lookout for green catalysts with superior performance, selectivity and lifespan for chemical processes and renewable energy resources.

This Special Issue has been created for topics on novel and emerging nanocatalysts engineering for sustainable chemical and biochemical processes, in the context of energy and environment. We welcome original contributions of both experimental and theoritical studies of significance and impact.
