Advanced Nanomaterials for Catalysis: Synthesis, Characterization, and Application

Description

Novel functional nanomaterials have attracted extensive research interest due to unique catalytic, optical, electronic, magnetic, and mechanical properties. In recent years, increased concerns about environmental pollution, energy conversion, and the production of organic compound have led to research efforts to develop novel catalysts, which can catalyze desirable chemical transformations. Nanoparticles with controlled morphology, shape, and pore structure have a higher surface area, which leads to the increased catalytic activity. So, there is an ever-increasing interest to design novel catalysts and establish a structure-activity relationship for the understanding of reaction mechanism. This allows the development of a large range of catalysts for energy, environment, and organic synthesis applications.

We invite authors to contribute their most recent research articles concerning new progress in morphology controlled synthesis, kinetic analysis, cutting edge characterization techniques, and wide application for catalytic nanomaterials.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Synthesis, characterization, and applications of functional materials for catalysis
  • Morphology controlled synthesis and growth mechanism
  • Theoretical modeling of catalytic reactions and kinetic analysis
  • Photocatalysis, electrocatalysis, and organocatalysis
  • Novel nanostructured catalysts for environment, energy, and organic synthesis
