Special Issue "Meeting of the Spanish Catalysis Society (SECAT’17)"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2017)
In 1835, Berzelius defined “catalysis”, from the Greek words kata, meaning down, and lyein, meaning loosen, as “the property of exerting on other bodies an action which is very different from chemical affinity. By means of this action, they produce decomposition in bodies, and form new compounds into the composition of which they do not enter”, this discipline has accumulated an increasing amount of experimental data and applied processes, which is, nowadays, continuously increasing.
The advances in research and its applications in different industries is still growing as of this moment. Thus, the selected theme for the congress “Catalysis for a more sustainable world”, tries to bring together different aspects of catalytic processes, from the preparation and characterization of catalysts to the design and simulation of catalytic reactors, both conventional and unconventional. Special emphasis will be placed on the development of catalysts and catalytic reactors for the development of more sustainable chemical processes, as well as for solving environmental problems. It is also intended to extend the contents of this congress to other types of catalysis, such as homogeneous catalysis, photocatalysis, electrocatalysis, biocatalysis, etc.
This Special Issue of Molecules, on the same topic as the conference, welcomes the submission of previously unpublished manuscripts, from original work on all the above-mentioned aspects. We plan to receive submissions from 30 June, 2017 to 30 September, 2017.
