Special Issue Information
The present Special Issue aims to combine a group of articles devoted to one of the most important areas in the field of catalysis, namely, catalysis by nanoparticles. Nanoparticles are the most common form of modern catalytic materials. Nanoparticles of very different chemical compositions and shapes (grains, rods, wires), supported by various carriers or unsupported, find their applications in organic synthesis, the photodegradation and chemical degradation of pollutants, the capture of carbon dioxide emissions, in the electrodes of fuel cells, and in other electrochemical power sources. The Special Issue will especially target synthetic catalysts, i.e., catalysts which are devised for the synthesis of organic compounds. Some specific reactions where nanoparticle catalysts are used include epoxidation, selective oxidation, selective reduction, hydrogenation, oxygen reduction, alcohol oxidation, and coupling reactions. Particular attention will be paid to the development of new, promising ways to synthesize active, stable, and selective nanocomposite catalysts. Articles devoted to applications of nanoparticle catalysts in various fields are welcome.

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 2200 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.
