Catalysis Research is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of catalysts and catalyzed reactions. Its aim is to provide timely, authoritative introductions to current thinking, developments and research in carefully selected topics.

Topics contain but are not limited to:

  • Photocatalysis
  • Electrocatalysis
  • Environmental catalysis
  • Biocatalysis, enzymes, enzyme catalysis
  • Catalysis for biomass conversion
  • Organocatalysis, catalysis in organic and polymer chemistry
  • Nanostructured Catalysts
  • Catalytic materials
  • Computational catalysis
  • Kinetics of catalytic reactions

It publishes a variety of article types: original research, review, communication, opinion, case report, study protocol, comment, conference report, technical note, book review, etc.

There is no restriction on paper length, provided that the text is concise and comprehensive. Authors should present their results in as much detail as possible, as reviewers are encouraged to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

About the topic:

Dear Colleagues,

Zeolites are crystalline aluminosilicates with an ordered porous network and a unique combination of properties such as high thermal and mechanical stability, well defined pore-size and intrinsic acidity. These materials attract interest due to their wide range of applications, especially as catalysts, where the native active sites or introduced species, such as metals, promote the occurrence of catalytic reactions, inside the pores that act as microreactors. Parallelly, the use of zeolites as supports for active species like organometallic complexes or enzymes has been growing since it allows to transform homogeneous to environmentally friendly and reusable heterogeneous catalysts. The aim of this Special Issue is to promote the discussion concerning the synthesis, modification and functionalization of zeolites and zeotypes, to produce effective and innovative catalysts/catalysts supports for heterogeneous reaction.
