Materials Challenges for Catalysis
Revolutionary catalytic materials with high activity and robust stability are critical for efficient and renewable clean energy. Reasonable design and syntheses of metal-based, metal-free and crystalline/amorphous materials is the key for improving the activity and stability of catalysts. Design can be further informed by catalytic mechanism and the role of active supports for tuning the reactivity. This Special Issue celebrates and discusses the current challenges, recent advances, and future perspectives around materials for catalysis. Contributions highlight both experimental and computational studies for converting materials, addressing energy and environmental issues, achieving carbon neutrality, and generating value-added products through catalysis.
