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, 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

Nanomaterials are the new trend in the general field of heterogeneous catalysis. This special issue welcomes original papers about novel nano-sized catalysts and their reactivity, communications, short reviews, and all kind of contributions in the field of synthesis, characterization, and evaluation of nano-sized (electro-)catalysts. All methods of preparation of nanomaterial-based functional catalysts ensuring enhanced catalytic activities in comparison with conventional catalysts are welcome. Papers dealing with green processes and preparation methods, different morphological material’s design and advanced characterization techniques are encouraged.

Topics may include:

  • General heterogeneous catalysis based on nanosized catalysts.
  • Nanosized catalysts for photocatalysis, electrocatalysis, biomass and biogas conversion, plasma catalysis approaches
  • Nanostructured catalysts for environmental reactions
  • Nanostructured catalysts for energy applications
  • Advanced preparation methods and characterization techniques of nano-sized functional catalysts
  • Bifunctional nano-sized catalysts
  • Bimetallic nano-sized catalysts
  • Chemical reaction engineering of catalytic processes using nano-sized catalysts
