The development of human living standards has unfortunately brought destruction to the earth. Climate change is triggered by the excessive use of fossil fuels. The amount of waste is rapidly increasing due to the use of disposable products, and it has been further increased due to COVID-19. To heal the earth, various attempts are being made based on developments in science and technology. Extensive studies are being carried out for new and renewable energies. Hydrogen (H2) is receiving special attention, and research into upcycling energy resources, including natural gas, coal, waste, biogas, and biomass, has caught the spotlight.
The upcycling of such resources to produce high-value chemicals often requires catalytic reactions, and the water–gas shift reaction (WGS, CO + H2O → CO2 + H2) is one of the most useful catalytic pathways that can upcycle the diverse types of synthesis gas to hydrogen. Currently, the application range for WGS reactions has further expanded to the upcycling of waste, biomass, and coal-derived synthesis gas.
This Special issue covers original research papers, reviews, and commentaries focused on the catalysts for the water–gas shift reaction. Submissions are welcome in the following areas that deal with the water–gas shift reaction: the synthesis, characterization, and application of new catalysts; studies on the activity and stability of the developed catalysts, evaluated by their conversion rate or turnover frequency; the identification of intermediates in the catalytic cycle; techno-economic analysis; or the mechanisms of the catalytic reaction.

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.
