Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metal-oxide nanostructures are emerging as a prominent class of materials with extraordinary catalytic properties. These nanostructures, composed of metal and oxygen atoms, exhibit unique surface properties, high reactivity, and efficient mass transport, making them highly desirable for a wide range of catalytic applications.

Following the success of the first volume, the Nanomaterials journal is delighted to announce the call for papers for a new renewed Special Issue focused on “Catalysis by Metal-Oxide Nanostructures—Volume II”. This Special Issue aims to explore recent advancements, challenges, and future prospects in the field of catalysis using metal-oxide nanostructures.

Topics of Interest:

We invite researchers from academia, industry, and research institutions to submit their original research, review articles, and perspectives on various aspects of catalysis by metal-oxide nanostructures. Potential topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Synthesis and characterization of metal-oxide nanostructures;
  • Theoretical modeling and computational simulations of metal-oxide catalysis;
  • Metal-oxide nanostructures for heterogeneous catalysis;
  • Metal-oxide nanocatalysts for energy conversion and storage;
  • Metal-oxide catalysts for environmental remediation;
  • Metal-oxide-based photocatalysis and photoelectrochemical applications;
  • Design and engineering of metal-oxide catalysts for specific reactions;
  • Surface modifications and functionalization of metal-oxide nanostructures;
  • Catalytic mechanisms and reaction kinetics of metal-oxide nanostructures;
  • In situ and operando characterization of metal-oxide catalysts.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 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. Nanomaterials 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 2900 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.
