Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Environmental concerns have increased researchers' awareness of environmental issues and are the driving forces for novel formulation/process concepts. The main goal is the development of more eco-sustainable processes; on the one hand, by reducing and controlling air and water pollution, and on the other, by designing innovative and environmentally friendly chemical approaches for the production of high-added-value products.

This Special Issue on “Metal-Based Formulations for Eco-Sustainable Processes in Homogeneous and Heterogeneous Catalysis” aims to provide a platform to highlight new research and significant advances in the development of homogeneous or heterogeneous metal-based catalysts for eco-sustainable processes. In addition, both theoretical/computational and experimental studies aimed at understanding the mechanisms of action of catalysts will be well highlighted.

Topics of research and review papers could include, but are not limited to, methods and/or applications in the following areas:

  • Homogeneous catalysis;
  • Heterogeneous catalysis;
  • Metal-based formulation development;
  • Development of computational/theoretical methodologies/approaches;
  • Catalyst application in sustainability processes;
  • New strategy for controlling air and water pollution;
  • Redesigning the conventional synthetic route as a more sustainable approach.

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. Processes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 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.
