Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the past few years, there has been significantly increased interest in the use of two-dimensional (2D) of nanomaterials in chemical technology and biotechnology. Innovative 2D structures of graphene family materials, Xenes, MXenes, mono- and dichalcogenides of transition metals, 2D oxides, and hydroxides, have been extensively studied for several years for application in various catalytical processes. While using various surface modifications, these properties can be extended and tailored for more specific reactions and effective reuse.

Use of innovative 2D structures may well find application in removing contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) from wastewater. The issue is that the impact of material parameters and process conditions on catalyst efficiency and reusing is yet to be revealed. A better understanding of the mechanisms of chemical reactions may help to obtain an answer whether catalytical processes in presence of 2D nanomaterials products will have a negative impact on the natural environment. There are still many important issues to explain so we kindly invite you to publish in Special Issue in the journal.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Catalysts is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
