Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the ever-evolving landscape of Biocatalysis and Enzyme Engineering, the journal Catalyst’s section of Biocatalysis presents the Special Issue titled “Feature Review Papers in Biocatalysis and Enzyme Engineering”. Spanning from the intricate mechanisms of enzymatic activity to the cutting-edge engineering of biocatalysts for transformative applications, our contributors are expected to offer insights that are both profound and practical. Through this Special Issue, we aim to cover a spectrum of topics, including but not limited to enzyme discovery and engineering, enzyme reaction engineering, and the application of enzymes in industrial processes.

In specific, Review Articles are invited to explore a diverse array of topics, which may include the discovery of novel enzymes, the intricate interplay between enzyme structure and function, the development and analysis of robust and sensitive high-throughput enzyme assays, and scalable biocatalytic synthesis processes for innovative manufacturing. A strong emphasis is placed on the computational design of enzymes through protein engineering, a frontier that holds immense promise for the rational design and optimization of biocatalysts. Your contributions will help in charting the course for future research, driving innovation, and fostering breakthroughs in the field of Biocatalysis and Enzyme Engineering.

The aims and scope of this Special Issue are, however, not limited to the above areas of interest, and potential authors are welcome to submit contributions on other Biocatalysis topics as well. It is a great honour and pleasure to invite you to contribute a Review Article for peer-review and possible publication in this Special Issue.

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.
