The Organometallic Catalysis section of Frontiers in Catalysis publishes high-quality/original research on all aspects (fundamental/basic/applied/industry focused) related to molecular and single-site catalysis involving organometallics as reaction mediators, co-catalysts, and precursors of the active species. Organometallic Catalysis is a discipline that combines inorganic, organic, applied, and industrial chemistry to an unprecedented extent. Consequently, the scope of this Section is particularly wide and includes catalytic processes of key importance for organic and pharmaceutical syntheses, innovative transformations of biomasses, development of new polymeric materials with improved performances, with particular attention to their environmental compatibility and biodegradability, activation and generation of small molecules aimed at generating renewable fuels, and biomimetic reactions. Contributions in all those topics based on experimental and/or theoretical/computational results, reporting on new catalysts, new catalytic reactions, advancements on the understanding and rationalization of the reaction mechanism, developments of analytical and spectroscopic techniques for investigating catalytic cycles are welcome.
Areas covered by this section include, but are not limited to:
– Transition metal organometallic catalysis;
– Main metal organometallic catalysis;
– Lanthanide and actinide organometallic catalysis;
– Bio-organometallic catalysis;
– Surface organometallic catalysis;
– Heterogenized/immobilized organometallic catalysis;
– Organometallics in alterative/green media;
– Catalysis with organic derivatives of metalloids (such as boron and silicon).
All studies must contribute insights into organometallic catalysis science.
