Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanocomposites with a very fine size have attracted huge attention in various catalytic oxidation reactions. In particular, nanocomposites prepared by the combination of two or more metal active species obviously show a significant enhancement in catalytic activity because of their high synergistic effect. In addition, bi- or tri-metallic nanocomposites are very stable and reusable, even under very harsh reaction conditions. Such bi- or tri-metallic nanocomposites (combination of two or three non-noble metals) have been demonstrated be an efficient alternate for the expensive noble-metal catalysts. Hence, the demand for bi- or tri-metallic nanocomposites has been increasing rapidly because of their importance in various catalytic oxidation reactions. Recently, research has been widely focused on developing unique methods for the preparation of bi- and tri-metallic nanocomposites. In fact, the preparation methods play a very crucial role in attaining the unique morphology of the nanocomposites. Hence, investigating the preparation methods and catalytic properties of bi- or tri-metallic nanocomposites deserves special attention. In this Special Issue, we invite authors to submit communications, original research, and review articles that focus on the preparation and catalytic applications of bi- or tri-metallic nanocomposites. Particularly, articles focusing on the preparation methods of bi- or tri-metallic nanocomposites and its uses in oxidation reactions, such as CO oxidation, epoxidation reactions, and oxidation of HMF, sulfides, alcohols, and alkanes, are just one of the main focuses of this Special Issue.

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.
