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:
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
Asymmetric catalysis is most effective and significant research area in synthetic organic chemistry for the superior preparation of chiral compounds. Enantioselective catalysis in its infancy in 1960s has dramatically changed the procedures of chemical synthesis, in which a chiral catalyst directs the formation of chiral molecules such that the formation of one particular major stereoisomer is favoured (R or S). This enantioselective process is controlled mainly by chiral catalysts via covalent or non-covalent binding/interactions with substrates. Since the low loading active chiral catalyst is not consumed during catalytic process, it actively involves in a catalytic cycle and produced desired product in high selectivity in short time with excellent yields in the most of the reactions. The end of the reaction possibly recovers back the enantiopure catalyst with the same level of efficiency and also avoids organic waste formations. Asymmetric catalysis is which includes the following divisions such as metal-, photo- and organo-, bio- and enzyme-based catalysis. Remarkably in recent years phenomenal developments in this catalysis area demonstrate a broad range of conceptual breakthroughs in chemical sciences and industry as well, and the practical benefits of organic synthesis, not only in chemical laboratories but also in the pharma industry. The recent growth of this main core chemical technology has offered an increase to huge economic potential in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, natural products, R&D, drug design and discovery, animal health products, agrochemicals, fungicides, pheromones, flavours, and fragrances, etc. This modern asymmetric catalysis process is becoming increasingly significant to a sustainable modern chemical society. It is also covered in environmental water and air pollution protection, which is of growing concern for human safety, and green catalysis has significantly reduced the amount of chemical waste used.
