Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The journal Processes plants to publish a Special Issue entitled "Preparation, Characterization and Application of Heterogeneous Catalysts". 

Heterogeneously catalysed reactions are playing an increasingly important role in modern chemistry. In many areas of environmental and climate protection as well as sustainable energy supply, heterogeneous catalysts are used to make chemical processes faster, safer, more environmentally friendly and/or cheaper. As a result, the scientific search for more effective heterogeneous catalysts remains a constant task for application-oriented research. This includes further research into traditional and special methods for the preparation of metallic, oxide and multifunctional catalyst systems, the possibilities of their textural, structural and surface chemical characterization, the investigation of their activity, selectivity and long-term stability as well as the discovery of the physical–chemical aspects their mode of action. This Special Issue offers a suitable platform for catalysis researchers to report on the latest scientific findings and experiences in the development and practical use of heterogeneous catalysts.

With great pleasure, I invite you to submit your manuscript to this Special Issue, to share recent progress regarding the preparation, characterization and application of heterogeneous catalysts.

Prof. Dr. Wladimir Reschetilowski
Guest Editor

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. Processes 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 2400 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.
