Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
As a promising CO2 mitigation strategy for carbon capture and storage, CO2 utilization and production for clean energy are attracting increasing interest globally. This Special Issue will focus on experimental and theoretical investigations of novel heterogeneous catalysts for clean energy production and CO2 utilization. Clean energy includes, but is not limited to, energy derived from renewable and carbon-free sources. The CO2 utilization approaches cover electrochemical, catalytic, photocatalytic and photosynthetic, and biological process.
Both fundamental and applied research topics on heterogeneous catalysts for clean energy production and CO2 utilization, including catalyst efficiency and stability, are of interest. Related studies on new methodologies for in situ and operando catalyst characterization are also of interest. The goal is to compile a set of manuscripts that inform the state-of-the-art in heterogeneous catalysis for clean energy and CO2 utilization.

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.
