Catalysis in Industry

ISSN: 2070-0504 (Print) 2070-0555 (Online)

Description

The journal covers the following topical areas:

  • Analysis of specific industrial catalytic processes:
    Production and use of catalysts in branches of industry: chemical, petrochemical, oil-refining, pharmaceutical, organic synthesis, fuel-energetic industries, environment protection, biocatalysis; technology of industrial catalytic processes (generalization of practical experience, improvements, and modernization); technology of catalysts production, raw materials and equipment; control of catalysts quality; starting, reduction, passivation, discharge, storage of catalysts; catalytic reactors.
  • Theoretical foundations of industrial catalysis and technologies:
    Research, studies, and concepts : search for and development of new catalysts and new types of supports, formation of active components, and mechanochemistry in catalysis; comprehensive studies of work-out catalysts and analysis of deactivation mechanisms; studies of the catalytic process at different scale levels (laboratory, pilot plant, industrial); kinetics of industrial and newly developed catalytic processes and development of kinetic models; nonlinear dynamics and nonlinear phenomena in catalysis: multiplicity of stationary states, stepwise changes in regimes, etc.
  • Advances in catalysis:
    Catalysis and gas chemistry; catalysis and new energy technologies; biocatalysis; nanocatalysis; catalysis and new construction materials.
  • History of the development of industrial catalysis.
PEER REVIEW

Catalysis in Industry is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 80 reviewers, both internal and external (75%), from 6 countries (Russia, Kazakhstan, Serbia, Finland, UK, USA). The average period from submission to first decision in 2017 was 30 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 25 days. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Peer Reviewers.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
