Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Catalysis is one of the longest-established uses for nanoparticles. Nanoparticles of metals, metal oxides, mixed metal oxides, and other compounds have been widely used for various important chemical reactions. This Special Issue aims to collect and disseminate some of the most significant and recent contributions in the following areas (although it is not limited to them):

  • Nanomaterial-based photocatalysis and biocatalysis
  • Nanocatalysts and nano-biocatalysts in the chemical industry
  • Nanocatalysis for carbon–carbon and carbon–heteroatom coupling reactions
  • Nanocatalysis for various organic transformations in fine chemical synthesis
  • Nanocatalysis for oxidation, hydrogenation, and other related reactions
  • Nanocatalysts for producing non-conventional energy such as hydrogen and biofuels

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 1800 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.
