Nanomaterials, particularly colloidal nanoparticles, hold great promise for heterogeneous catalysis due to their large surface area, concentration of undercoordinated surface sites and their potential for dispersion on the surface of an oxide or other support. Catalytic nanostructured materials can achieve higher activity when compared to bulk particles, and also higher selectivity - an important issue in the development of greener synthesis methods.

This special symposium focuses on the novel design, synthesis, and commercial production of nanostructured materials for catalysis applications.

Journal Submissions

Journal of Nanoparticle Research

Selected papers will be reviewed and invited into a Special Issue of Journal of Nanoparticle Research. The journal disseminates knowledge of the physical, chemical and biological phenomena and processes in nanoscale structures.

Coverage includes synthesis, assembly, transport, reactivity, and stability, and emphasizes realization and application of systems, structures and devices with novel functions obtained via precursor nanoparticles.

The Journal fosters the interdisciplinary dissemination of knowledge by encouraging synergetic approaches originating from a wide range of disciplines, such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Health Care.
