Special Issue "Nano Au Materials for Catalysis of Organic Transformations"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2021.
Interests: heterogeneous catalysis of organic transformations using metal nanoparticles, synthetic organic methodology, green chemistry, biomimetic organic synthesis
Nano Au catalysts (supported or unsupported Au nanoparticles and nanoporous Au materials) have emerged rather unexpectedly as powerful heterogeneous and recyclable catalysts in a variety of organic transformations, initially in aerobic oxidative transformations, later to reductive processes by various means, with an emphasis on transfer hydrogenation, and more recently, in the activation of π systems and σ heteroelement linkages.
In this Special Issue on “Nano Au materials for Catalysis of Organic Transformations”, a series of original contributions by leading experts in the field is expected to highlight recent advances and future perspectives of this emerging topic. These original research and review articles are intended to cover various aspects in the field of nano Au science, including synthesis, structural characterization of catalysts, theoretical studies, and primarily, their catalytic applications in a diverse range of organic transformations.

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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2200 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.
