Open Chemistry: Topical Issue on Catalysis



Christiana A. Mitsopoulou, National & Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece 


Catalysis is one of the most intellectually challenging and industrially important fields of contemporary science. All branches of catalysis such as heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis and photocatalysis are ideal for chemical entrepreneurs, and still rapidly developing and widening in scope. The development of catalysis by finding new catalysts is a very growing field in the area of renewable sources and the synthesis of fine chemicals


The authors are kindly invited to register at our paper processing system at: http://www.editorialmanager.com/openchem/ and submit their contribution using a special track established for this topical issue. All papers will go through the Open Chemistry’s high standards, quick, fair and comprehensive peer-review procedure. Instructions for authors are available here. In case of any questions please contact Coordinating Editor or Journal Editor.

The deadline for submission is March 31st 2017.
