Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Energy shortages, environmental pollution, and climate change have become the focus of world attention. The development of a low-carbon economy with low energy consumption, reduced dependence on fossil resources, and the realization of environmental pollutant purification are important means to attain the sustainable development of human society. Catalytic conversion is an important strategy for achieving the above goals, but the key challenge lies in developing new catalytic materials, principles, methods, and approaches for efficient catalytic conversion. At present, the development of related industries is slow, mainly due to the lack of significant innovation and breakthroughs in science and technology. This Special Issue will highlight recent advances in catalytic environmental and energy conversion, including heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis, with the aid of promoting the development of these fields.

Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Catalytic biomass conversion and application.
  2. NOx catalytic reduction.
  3. Heterogeneous catalytic reactions such as CH4 activation and water–gas shift.
  4. Electrocatalytic and photocatalytic applications such as CO2 reduction, oxygen reduction, and water oxidation.
  5. Advanced analysis/characterizations.
  6. Understanding the active sites through theoretical investigations.

Original research papers and topical reviews are welcome in this Special Issue of Catalysts. Submit your papers by selecting the journal Catalysts and the Special Issue "Catalytic Energy Conversion and Catalytic Environmental Purification" via the MDPI submission system. Please contact the Guest Editor (Yongjun Ji/Yuxi Liu/Shaomian Liu) or the Journal Editor ( for any queries. Our papers will be published on a rolling basis, and we look forward to receiving your submission.

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.
