Gold nanocatalysts have demonstrated excellent features for environmental catalysis including CO oxidation, clean hydrogen production, VOCs abatement, water purification, CO2 reduction, among many other applications. Despite the increasing trend in catalytic studies dealing with gold-based materials, many questions remain open and the beauty of gold for the catalysis community remains alive. Apparently the magic of this element resides in its resistance to be completely understood. Simultaneously, this mystery attracts scientists to keep working on it, to keep playing the game of revealing the beautiful secrets behind gold catalysts.

The aim of this Research Topic is to celebrate the success of catalysis by gold (homogeneous, heterogeneous, or photocatalytic), the extraordinary versatility of gold nanoparticles as catalytic materials and the impact of gold-based catalysts for the development of greener and more sustainable societies.

We encourage the submission of original research and review articles with a focus on:

 • Design and synthesis of gold nanoparticles and gold-based catalysts
 • Application of gold-based materials
 • Novel mechanistic insights
 • Gold-catalyzed gas and liquid phase reactions


Keywords: gold nanoparticles, environmental catalysis, oxidation reactions, pollutant abatement
