Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

CO2, a cheap, nontoxic, and abundant carbon feedstock, has garnered significant interest from academia and industry for its conversion into valuable products. The potential to transform CO2 into fuels, chemicals, polymers, and building materials has opened up new avenues for sustainable development. Although some industrial processes utilizing CO2, such as urea synthesis, are well established, the chemical conversion of CO2 remains challenging due to its thermodynamic nature.

To address these challenges and showcase the latest advancements in CO2 conversion technologies, we are pleased to announce the second edition of our Special Issue on “Catalysis for CO2 Conversion”. This edition aims to bring together leading scientists to present their cutting-edge research in catalyst development, process design, system analysis, and multidisciplinary approaches.

We invite researchers to contribute original research papers, review articles, and short communications that delve into various aspects of CO2 conversion. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Catalyst synthesis and characterization;
  • Reactor design and optimization;
  • Process engineering and scale-up;
  • Mechanistic investigations;
  • Numerical simulations and modelling.

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.
