Over the last few decades, numerous studies have been published on the use of structured catalysts for various applications, both in the environmental field (NOx abatement, VOC removal, combustion, etc.) and in the intensification of syngas, hydrogen, and related production processes (reforming, WGS, methanation, etc.). Structured catalysts are typically obtained through the realization of a catalytically active coating on a structured support of the ceramic or metal type. The most studied structured supports are monoliths and foams. Several techniques for the preparation of structured supports have been described; monoliths are generally obtained by extrusion, rolling, and piling of crimped foils, while foams are obtained with the "replication method" or the "bubble generation method". More recently, additive manufacturing techniques have been proposed to obtain conventional structures such as monoliths, and also hybrid structures or more complex geometries, by depositing or sintering materials, based on coordinates derived from a digital model, through a computer-controlled positioning system. Several techniques are used to realize the catalytic coating, including impregnation, washcoating, deposition, and chemical conversion. The choice of the structured support is decisive for the transport phenomena, and the chemical formulation of the coating depends on the intended application. Moreover, the chemical and textural characteristics of the structured support are crucial to the choice of the technique of realization of the coating.
This Special Issue of Compounds covers a wide range of aspects of the realization of structured supports and catalytic coatings and applications in the environmental and catalytic fields. Original research papers, short communications, and review articles are welcome.

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. Compounds is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
