Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Research on catalysis, namely on the fundamental properties of heterogeneous catalysts as well as on the nature of catalytically active sites, have remained largely understudied. Nanostructured materials play an important role in today’s chemical processes, acting as catalysts in heterogeneous, photo, thermal, and electrocatalytic processes for the production of cost-effective feedstock chemicals, smart/sensing surfaces or fuel cells, just to mention a few.

New insights are necessary to understand the rate-determining processes and steps of many heterogeneous reactions and identify important structure-activity/selectivity synergies, enabling a knowledge-driven improvement of catalysts. Furthermore, the traditional need for efficient and selective catalytic reactions that also strives for waste reduction, atomic efficiency, high reaction rates, and catalyst recovery are topics that still need more input. This Special Issue aims to highlight key examples of advanced designed nanomaterials with applications in catalytic and sustainable processes.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Molecules 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 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.
