Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The rising demand for environmental protection has led to an intensive search for more effective solutions characterized by, for example, higher selectivity or yield, lower energy consumption, and an even more compact geometry in catalytic converters. Therefore, researchers are still trying to develop active catalysts using effective techniques for catalyst deposition (e.g., sonochemical) as well as new catalyst supports characterized by a favourable trade-off between mass (heat) transfer and flow resistance (e.g., wire meshes, short monoliths, and solid foams).
Therefore, the aim of the present Special Issue is to collect recent and the most up to date reports on the development, optimization, and testing of catalytic reactors, especially (but not only) those used in environmental protection processes at every stage of their design, from the microscale (e.g., identification of molecules involved in a unitary elementary act, surface analysis, and determining the reaction mechanism) to the mesoscale (preparation and catalyst deposition) and the macroscale (reactor design and modeling) and to application tests. Broad contributions, including experimental and computational studies, would be valuable subjects of 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.
