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 This Topic

Heterogeneous catalysis is one of important process in the synthesis of many key products such as petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals and so on. In addition, heterogeneous catalysis for sustainable energy and environmental applications also receive much attention. This special issue is focused on Heterogeneous Catalysis which contains both fundamental and practical applications in this field of emergent academic and industrial benefits. The characterization of innovative catalysts and the in-situ identification of reaction mechanisms and limiting steps are welcome. A special attention will be paid to the heterogeneous catalysts synthesized via green process and from the renewable resources.

The potential topics include, but not limited to:

  1. Green Process for the Synthesis of Novel Heterogeneous Catalysts.
  2. Characterization and Mechanisms of Heterogeneous Catalytic Reactions.
  3. Heterogeneous Photocatalysts: From Fundamentals to Innovative Applications.
  4. Heterogeneous Catalysts from renewable resources for Sustainable Energy and Environmental Protection.
  5. Advances in Heterogeneous Catalysis and Electrocatalysis.
