The Nanocatalysis section publishes high-quality work across all aspects of catalysis at the nanoscale. The section covers fundamental, experimental and technology-oriented work across different phases (heterogenous or homogenous), materials (organic or inorganic) and driving forces (electrochemical or photo-/ thermal- initiated). All articles must show conceptual advances or novel insights into catalysis or catalysts with at least one dimension or process at the nanoscale.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Synthesis and characterization of nanocatalysts
• Shape, size, surface composition and dimension effects
• Dispersion and aggregation of active materials (hydrophobicity or hydrophilicity)
• Asymmetric or symmetric catalytic effects
• Amorphous, defective or crystalline materials
This section also encourages articles with a strong focus on the dynamic reactive interface for complicated multiphase systems; diffusion optimization studies accompanied by intrinsic activity tailoring; new analytical methods that provide a novel understanding of nanocatalysts. Demonstration of the correlation between processing, structural engineering and performance enhancement of catalytic nanosystems are also considered for publication.
Indexed in: coming soon
Nanocatalysis welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, Methods, Mini Review, Original Research, Review and Specialty Grand Challenge.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Nanocatalysis, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Nanocatalysis will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Nanotechnology.
