The Nanocatalysis Specialty section provides a forum to gather high-quality work across all aspects of catalysis based on nanocatalysts. Nanocatalysis covers fundamental, experimental and technology-oriented works, regardless of phases (heterogenous or homogenous), materials (organic or inorganic), and driving forces (electrochemical or photo-/ thermal- initiated).
For research focused on nanocatalysts, new theories and rigorous experimental observations on the following are welcome:
· Shape, size and dimension effects
· Dispersion and aggregation of active materials (hydrophobicity or hydrophilicity)
· Asymmetric or symmetric catalytic effects
· Amorphous, defective or well-crystallized materials
A strong focus on the dynamic reactive interface for complicated multiphase systems is encouraged. Diffusion optimization studies, accompanied with intrinsic activity tailoring, are also welcome. Research proposing new analytical methods that provide a significantly new understanding of nanocatalysts will be considered.
Communications, articles or review papers, must show conceptual advances or novel insights into catalysis or catalysts with at least one dimension or process at the nanoscale. The demonstration of a correlation between processing, structural engineering and performance enhancement of catalytic nanosystems are also accepted.
