The use of cerium-oxide-based material as catalysts has played an increasingly important role over the years, especially in the field of environmental catalysis. Cerium oxide nanoparticles due to the self-regeneration of their surface, which is based on the easy changing during redox cycling between 3+ and 4+, was largely employed in catalytic converters for emissions control from engine vehicles. In addition, cerium oxide exhibits antioxidant properties both in vitro and in vivo and is then used in biomedical applications to treat diseases that are characterized by higher levels of reactive oxygen. Many synthesis procedures are reported in the literature, and cerium nanoparticles have been deposited in many different supports, such as silica, alumina, or titania. Nevertheless, due to the importance of cerium nanoparticles, the research effort must continue. This Special Issue has the goal to stimulate the research community to share the last findings in cerium-based materials, pointing out synthesis procedures, characterization, and activity, taking also into account the environmentally friendly impact of its use.

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.
