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

The Environmental catalysis covers the prime prospective for the mitigation of prime pollutants such as waste organic dyes, pesticides, toxic heavy metals, chloride, fluoride SOX, NOX, COX and other organic/inorganic compounds from the primary both stationary as well as mobile sources. Though, there have been the investigation using a good quantum of numerous catalysts for efficient production of energy and environmental emission control, the performance is observed to be limited along with significant level of adverse impact thereof owing to their extensive utilization. Therefore, development of environmental friendly and cost effective catalyst material(s)-cum-processes is urgently needed for comprehensive production of clean energy. In addition, the special attention may be driven towards the reusability of those noble catalysts with long durability. The recent trend of catalytic processes like photochemical, Biomass reduction, Biochemical and electro-chemical are also included for sustainable energy production while adopting the environmentally friendly catalysts. The composite material, activated carbon, bio-sorbent materials, mesoporous materials, metal oxide nano particle, zeolites, nano-material, metal organic frame work (MOFs) are appears to be promising in the environmental remediation process. Therefore, this special issue is intended to address in synthesis, development and designing of these catalytic materials for numerous applications.
