Heterogeneous catalysts are one of the oldest and most important branches in the science of catalysis. Large-tonnage processes such as petroleum industry, fertilizers and polymers production and other chemicals make great use of heterogeneous catalysts. Therefore, industrially significant reactions constantly need new generations of heterogeneous catalysts with ever-higher performance compared to their predecessors. Ensuring the progress of their development often requires knowledge from different areas which, at first sight, are loosely related to each other—for example, the stability of colloidal metal nanoparticles in solution and the formation of ordered porous oxide materials with a high specific surface area; segregation processes in various alloys and partial oxidation reactions of hydrocarbons; and the formation of defects in the structure of solids and the adsorption processes on the different types of metal faces. Using different relationships from various areas of knowledge, researchers are able to both improve existing catalytic systems and create completely new catalysts for new reactions. In addition, the development of physical methods for nanomaterials investigation makes it possible to better understand the fine details of various structural and electronic interactions within them, which can be very important for tuning their catalytic properties. On this basis, this Special Issue titled “Advances in Heterogeneous Catalysts” is devoted to the preparation of heterogeneous catalysts, their study using physical methods, as well as the search for various relationships that affect the structure of materials and their catalytic properties. Non-standard and unusual systems are welcome, as well as methods and approaches for interpreting data.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
