Tailoring Resource-Efficient Catalysts for Sustainable Energy and Chemical Processes

This Virtual Special Issue (VSI) of ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering was organized to highlight recent developments on photocatalysts, electrocatalysts, and heterogeneous catalysts for the efficient production of sustainable energy and chemicals using fewer resources and generating less waste. The collection of articles targets the advancement and prospect of catalysis science and technology in artificial photo-synthesis, biomass conversion, green chemicals, hydrogen production and storage, as well as clean coal and hydrocarbon transformation. These papers combine novel catalyst design and synthesis with the advanced characterization and efficient reaction processes, the obtained knowledge will accelerate towards the pre-design of high-performance catalysts for the grand challenges in energy and chemical industry.
