Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Coordination compounds are known and were used since antiquity. One of the most known examples is the pigment called Prussian blue, while the modern theory of coordination chemistry is mainly based on the research of Alfred Werner and metal halide complexes with ammonia. Coordination complexes are essential in many biochemical processes through metalloenzymes, “natural catalysts” regulating biological processes. Today, coordination compounds play an important role in many industrial processes, as catalysts controlling reactivity.

This Special Issue focusses on molecular and supported catalysts containing coordination complexes and related processes catalyzed by them. In addition to preparation and characterization of the coordination compounds, attention will be paid to oxidation reactions (substrates being alkanes, alkenes, alcohols, sulfides, …) in which high catalyst activity, stability, and selectivity towards the desired product are pivotal parameters to be reached and understood. Thus, in addition to the catalyst activity, clarifying the reaction mechanism is strongly encouraged.

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.
