It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a contribution to this Special Issue, entitled “Heterogeneous Catalysis for Biomass Valorization” and published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences (ISSN 1422-0067), an open access journal published online by MDPI. Its most recent impact factor is 6.208 according to the 2021 Journal Citation Reports.
Currently, the valorization of biomass is a key as aspect in developing sustainable alternatives to fossil resources since biomass is a renewable feedstock that can be used for the production of biofuels, chemicals and energy. Homogeneous catalysts are traditionally employed for these processes in the industry; however, the use of solid catalysts plays a key role in order to make these processes more environmentally friendly and competitive. This Special Issue deals with the use of heterogeneous catalysts for the transformation of biomass or biomass-derived products into valuable chemicals, including bio-based products and biofuels, acting as a platform for researchers in this field to exchange information and updates. For this purpose, we cordially invite you to submit original research articles or comprehensive reviews on this topic, which will contribute to the development and implementation of these processes in biorefineries.

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.
