The Introduction of the Special Issue

Today, catalysts play a significant role in the production of chemicals and nanocatalysts have the potential for improving efficiency, selectivity and yield of the catalytic process. The higher surface to volume ratio means that much more catalyst actively participates in the reaction. The potential for cost saving is tremendous from a material, equipment, labour and time standpoint. Higher selectivity means less waste and fewer impurities, which could lead to safer and reduced environmental impact. Combination of computational approaches with experimental methods to reveal the mechanistic pathway of organic reactions provides more detailed information about the structure, bonding, stereochemistry and spectroscopic properties of compounds through the reaction path and consequently leads to the new opportunities for production of novel chemicals and discovery of useful drugs.


The Research Scope of the Special Issue

·Synthesis of new category of nano-organometallic catalysts

·Application of the nano-organometallic catalyst for the synthesis of organic compound

·Quantum chemical approaches to organic reaction mechanism

·Potential energy surface scan and transition state modelling

·Computational approaches to organo-metallic based catalysis
