At present, enzymes have been widely used as biological catalysts in several fields, including foods, feedstuffs, detergents, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, biofuels, fine chemicals, energy generation, paper manufacturing, textile, leather, environmental protection, and so on. However, the application of their free forms in industrial production may be limited by their high loadings, fragile nature, and difficult recovery and recycling. These disadvantages can be overcome by enzyme immobilization, which can promote the effective recovery and recycling of the enzymes and improve their properties, such as activity, selectivity, and long-term operational stability in industrial applications.
For this Special Issue, contributions on all aspects of enzyme immobilization are welcome, which may be related to fundamental science or practical applications and can be outlined by the keywords given below.

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.
