Special Issue "Fabrication of Heterostructure Nanomaterials for Catalysis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 October 2021.
Interests: catalysis; catalytic process; environmental remediation; functional nanomaterials
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Heterostructure nanomaterials have been explored as potential catalysts in many heterogeneous catalysis applications, such as photo/electrochemical water splitting, carbon dioxide conversion, pollutant remediation, hydrodesulfurization of petroleum, organic molecule transformations, etc. Herein, we invite authors to contribute original research articles or comprehensive review articles covering the most recent progress and new developments in the synthesis and utilization of heterostructure nanomaterials for highly efficient and novel processes associated with catalytic applications in energy, the environment, and sustainability. This Special Issue aims to cover a broad range of subjects from heterostructure nanomaterials synthesis to the design and technologies with nanomaterial integration. The article type includes full papers, communications, and reviews. Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Heterostructure nanomaterials development, synthesis, and fabrication for catalytic reactions;
- Design and preparation of novel nanotextured/nanostructured surfaces for improved energy storage and conversion efficiencies;
- Low-dimensional nanomaterials or nanocomposites for catalysis applications;
- Green techniques for heterostructure nanomaterials processing;
- Nanomaterial-based technologies for environmental and sustainable catalysis issues;
- Other studies of nanoscience and nanotechnology associated with catalysis and sustainability.

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.
