Interests: biomass; waste recycling; carbon materials; environmental catalysis
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
To achieve the goal of sustainable biofuel and biochemical (biochar) production, the transition from fossil fuels to renewable alternatives, such as biomass resources, has been widely recognized. The sustainable, efficient, and affordable thermochemical conversion of biomass resources is one of the promising approaches for biofuel and biochemical (biochar) production. Hydrothermal/pyrolysis conversion technologies provide a competitive edge for the reuse of biomass over conventional methods.
This Topical Collection is designed to collect original research and review articles focusing on thermochemical conversion of biomass resources. This Topical Collection aims to enhance the utilization efficiency of biomass resources to produce biofuel and biochemical (biochar) and the application potential of biochemical (biochar) in different fields.
In this Topical Collection, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following:
- Valorization of renewable biomass for chemicals/biofuels production;
- Hydrothermal/pyrolysis processing of wet biomass for biofuel production;
- Hydrothermal/pyrolysis processing of biomass for biochar production;
- Synthesis of nanostructured materials from biomass resources for heterogeneous/homogeneous catalysis/adsorbents;
- Application of biofuels and biochemicals (biochar);
- Modelling and simulation of thermochemical conversion of biomass resources;
- Solid waste treatment and resource utilization.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection 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 2700 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.
