Selective oxidation processes are used to activate raw materials and transform them into useful products and chemical intermediates. Hydrocarbons, in particular alkanes, are the main components of gas and oil and are a good example of such raw materials. The C–H bond(s) of these compounds can be transformed into C–OH or C=O groups that will lead to the production of high added value products with applications in fine chemistry. The selective oxidation of hydrocarbons is a very important reaction taking place in industrial processes based on petroleum, since the oxygenated compounds produced can be used as intermediates for organic synthesis. However, the activation of such bonds remains a challenge for researchers. Reactions are often characterized by low conversions and the formation of unwanted by-products.
The aim of this Special Issue is to cover the oxidations of those substrates, using different catalysts, such as supported nanoparticles, carbon materials, metal oxides, zeolites, and metal organic frameworks, among others. New methods of catalyst preparation and the use of “greener” milder reaction conditions are especially welcome, but we aim at publishing any other recent updates on this particularly important field.
I invite you all to contribute with your valuable research to this Special Issue.

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.
