Over the last several decades, the development/exploitation of highly porous materials, including wide range of materials such as MOFs, ZIFs, COFs, zeolites and carbon materials, has increased significantly. There has been a substantial advancement in the development of highly porous material with desired chemical and physical characteristics for various applications, including as catalyst supports, active materials and/or adsorbents. In many cases, the new class of materials open opportunities in developing new chemical processes technologies. They also contribute to the improvement of existing chemical processes. All these activities together contribute to the enhancement of process efficiencies, minimization of environmental impacts and increasing of economic benefits.
This Special Issue, entitled “Porous Materials as Efficient Catalysts: Synthesis, Characterization, and Applications”, will concentrate on capturing advancements in the application of porous materials as catalyst materials in wide range of applications. Research findings aimed at the fundamental exploration of catalyst development—catalyst syntheses, characterizations and testing in laboratory/larger scales, catalyst deactivation, reaction mechanisms, kinetics investigations, catalytic reactors, experience in catalytic process operations involving porous materials—are of principal interest of this Special Issue. State-of-the-art reviews of these subjects are also welcome.

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 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. Catalysts 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 2700 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.
