Interests: heterogeneous catalysts for the direct and indirect conversion of methane to syngas and methanol, conversion of light alkanes into olefins, hydrodesulfurization and oxidesulfurization of middle distillates, de-NOx of industrial effluents, three-way catalysts for exhaust treatment, reforming of light and heavy hydrocarbons, catalytic combustion reactions, CO2 valorization
Synthesis gas or, briefly, syngas, is a mixture of CO, CO2, and H2. Syngas is a crucial platform for the production of a variety of products including synthetic hydrocarbons and oxygenates fuels. This Special Issue compiles and reviews the latest advances in catalytic production from several sources (fossil, biomass) and the conversion of syngas into value-added products. Catalytic processes for Syngas production will be revised including production from natural gas, coal, biomass, or virtually any hydrocarbon feedstock, by reaction with steam or oxygen. with an emphasis on the selective production of low molecular weight alcohols (CnOH, n = 1 − 5), dimethyl ether (DME), light olefins (C2-C4, which are key building block chemicals), and hydrocarbons (C5+ as liquid fuels). Recent advances in understanding and developing active phases, supports, promoters, and reactor configurations to control the selectivity in the syngas production and conversion are the most challenging subjects for scientific research in syngas conversion. This Special Issue provides insight into the challenges surrounding syngas conversion and the initiatives in catalysis research undertaken to overcome those. Submissions are welcome in the form of original research papers or short reviews that reflect the state-of-the-art of this research area.

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.
