Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

This Special Issue aims to publish high-quality and impactful articles in the field of catalysis with applications in the conversion of biomass and its derivatives. This is an exclusive Special Issue that will feature papers from leading scientists in the field of catalytic conversion of biomass on a by-invitation-only basis, but if your group would like to contribute, please contact the Guest Editors with the proposed title and abstract of your work to discuss your potential submission. 

Original articles and reviews dealing with homogeneous, heterogeneous and enzymatic catalysis within the scope of the Biomass Catalysis Section are welcome.
