At present, the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere is increasing due to human activity, having a negative environmental impact in many ecosystems. There are several approaches to mitigate this phenomena: reduce emissions, capture CO2 from the atmosphere, and convert it to valuable chemicals. A profitable technology for CO2 conversion to valuable products would drive industrial implementation. During the last decade, many procedures/technologies have been developed; it is likely that not only one solution, but a combination of several procedures, will help to restore the CO2 levels. However, in the short term, there is a special interest in CO2 conversion to fuels, as this technology would cycle the CO2 emitted by industries and activities based on fossil fuel and considerably reduce their carbon footprint.
The aim of this Special Issue is to cover the research trends on materials for CO2 conversion. Full papers, short communications, and reviews in this field are welcome. Mini-reviews with an overview on the state of the art with the future perspectives and trends will be also considered.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
