Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, there has been a growing emphasis on utilizing biomass as a renewable and sustainable resource for energy and chemical production. Within this context, catalytic processes play a pivotal role in enabling efficient biomass conversion. This special issue aims to offer an insightful exploration into the forefront of biomass conversion technologies within the European context. We invite original research papers and short reviews that explore various aspects of catalytic biomass conversion, including novel catalyst design, reaction mechanisms, process optimization, and applications in biofuel and biochemical production. This special issue aims to serve as a valuable resource for researchers, engineers, and policymakers seeking to harness the potential of biomass as a renewable and environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuels. Contributions from researchers and experts in the field will provide valuable insights into the cutting-edge techniques and technologies driving the transition towards a more sustainable bioeconomy in Europe.

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. 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.
