Catalysts play an important role for the transformation of organic compounds to useful building blocks. Metal-based catalysts make a significant contribution towards the catalytic transformations of organic compounds. Simple metal oxides, metal salts or metal complexes can exhibit high activity as catalysts for the transformation of organic compounds. Catalytic reactions, viz., oxidation of alkanes and alcohols, epoxidation of alkenes and allylic alcohols, hydrocarboxylation, oxidative bromination or sulfoxidation of organic compounds, oxidative C–C coupling, CO2 insertion, polymerization, etc. are some of the common and widely used processes for the synthesis of organic compounds. The catalysts can be homogeneous, heterogenous or supported depending on their nature and activity in the catalytic reactions. Several techniques such as the use of microwave irradiation, ionic liquid or supercritical CO2 medium are employed to make the catalytic process more energy-efficient. Kinetic studies, theoretical calculation, and illustrations of a mechanism for the catalytic path give more detailed information for a particular catalytic reaction.
This Special Issue is devoted to the recent development of new metal-based catalysts for the synthesis of organic compounds. It covers catalytic reactions under homogeneous, heterogenous or supported conditions. Reaction kinetics and reaction mechanisms are also an important part of this issue. New and original research studies on this topic are welcome.

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.
