In recent decades, a wide range of precious metal catalysts have emerged as key catalytic materials for the production of fine chemicals and liquid/gas fuels. Precious metal catalysts, in the form of supported mono, bimetallic or multimetallic nanoparticles are the most common materials of sustainable and green catalytic processes. A range of supported metal nanoparticles have been evaluated for a range of catalytic applications, where the control of particle size, metal composition, morphology (alloy versus core-shell structure), oxidation state, nature of support, and metal-support interaction are crucial for providing active, selective, and stable catalysts. Finally, the crucial role of reactor design and final chemical processes for controlling activity, selectivity and deactivation phenomena has been demonstrated.
We invite the scientific community to submit their contributions in the form of original research articles and review articles that seek interactions between precious metal catalysts and their catalytic applications on selected topics. We are particularly interested in articles describing:
1) Biomass transformation
2) Hydrogen peroxide synthesis
3) Alcohol oxidation
4) CO2 valorization
5) Deactivation studies using in situ and ex situ spectroscopic techniques
6) Continuous flow processes for selective transformation
7) Computational modeling and simulation of catalytic sustainable processesDr. Jennifer K. Edwards

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.
