Applied Catalysis A: General
publishes novel papers on all aspects of catalysis
of basic and practical interest to chemical
scientists in both industrial and academic fields.
The scope of Applied Catalysis A: General
includes the following:
- Scientific understanding of any catalytic phenomenon. Phenomena of relevance to current industrial processes, processes under industrial
development or of interest for future commercial applications are particularly welcome. Heterogeneous, homogeneous and
biocatalysis are included. Research investigating catalytic actions of heterogeneous, homogeneous, biological and natural systems
are especially encouraged.
- Scientific aspects of preparation, activation, aging, deactivation, rejuvenation, regeneration
and start up transient effects of commercially interesting or representative model catalysts.
- Scientific methods of characterization
of catalysts, especially if they are applicable to industrial catalysts.
- Chemical engineering aspects relevant to an improved
understanding of catalytic phenomena or application to catalysis. Results involving a joint approach by chemical engineering and catalytic
science are particularly welcome.
- New catalysts, catalytic reactions, catalytic routes and processes of potential practical
- Catalysis and catalytic processes for sustainable practices, including sustainable energy supply and consumption
processes, and sustainable chemicals production.
The journal accepts original Research Papers, Reviews, invited Perspective
articles and Letters to the Editor
