Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure for me to invite you to submit a manuscript to the Special Issue “Catalysis by Hybrid Materials”, which will be published in the journal Molecules.

This Special Issue will be focused on interdisciplinary state-of-the-art research articles, communications, and reviews related to various aspects of the synthesis, characterization, and catalytic application of hybrid materials, including nanomaterials. The specific aspect of the Special Issue is the synergy of the components in the hybrid composition (nanoparticles, organic and inorganic parts, specific functional groups), because such non-additive interactions may result in a significant improvement of the properties of hybrid systems compared to conventional materials and nanomaterials. Of special interest, of course, are nanomaterials, as far as the synergetic effects are size-dependent and may be quite different depending on the morphology of the nanoparticles encapsulated or built in the structure of a host matrix. One of the components of the system may affect the electronic state of the other component, causing electron transfer that, in turn, will have consequences in catalysis. Advanced architectures of the hybrid materials (core–shell, decorated particles, etc.) provide a driving force for the progress in diverse research areas and applications, including the development of new nano-engineered catalysts. The incentive of this Special Issue is to show the progress and to reveal new aspects in the broad field of hybrid materials. Combining individual contributions from these areas will allow us to produce the journal issue with a high impact. Thus, submissions focused on any materials and their novel applications in catalysis, which disclose new manifestations of the synergy of the components in hybrid systems, are cordially invited. Both homogeneous and heterogeneous catalytic systems are welcome. The specific catalytic applications may include but not be limited to:

  • Natural gas processing;
  • CO2 utilization;
  • Biomass valorization;
  • Environmental applications;
  • Oil and hydrocarbon processing;
  • Waste conversion into added-value products;
  • Basic organic synthesis;
  • Fine organic synthesis.

Please note that Molecules is an open access journal, and the whole Special Issue will be freely available for all readers across the world. Information about open access options and conditions is provided at the journal website.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.

Abstract
Decomposition of N2O on modified zeolites, crystalline titanosilicalites, and related amorphous systems is studied by the catalytic and spectroscopic methods. Zinc-containing HZSM-5 zeolites and titanosilicalites with moderate Ti/Si ratios are shown to exhibit a better catalytic performance in N2O [...] Read more.
Decomposition of N2O on modified zeolites, crystalline titanosilicalites, and related amorphous systems is studied by the catalytic and spectroscopic methods. Zinc-containing HZSM-5 zeolites and titanosilicalites with moderate Ti/Si ratios are shown to exhibit a better catalytic performance in N2O decomposition as compared with conventionally used Cu/HZSM-5 zeolites and amorphous Cu-containing catalysts. Dehydroxylation of the HZSM-5 zeolite by calcination at 1120 K results in an enhancement of the N2O conversion. The mechanism of the reaction and the role of coordinatively unsaturated cations and Lewis acid sites in N2O decomposition are discussed on the basis of the spectroscopic data. Full article

This work is addressing the arenes’ hydrogenation—the processes of high importance for petrochemical, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Noble metal (Pd, Pt, Ru) nanoparticles (NPs) stabilized in hyper-cross-linked polystyrene (HPS) were shown to be active and selective catalysts in hydrogenation of a wide range of arenes (monocyclic, condensed, substituted, etc.) in a batch mode. HPS effectively stabilized metal NPs during hydrogenation in different medium (water, organic solvents) and allowed multiple catalyst reuses. Full article
