Aims & Scope


Modern Research in Catalysis (MRC) is an open access journal published quarterly. The goal of this journal is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in all aspects of Catalyst.

All manuscripts must be prepared in English and are subject to a rigorous peer-review process. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy. The areas covered by Modern Research in Catalysis (MRC) include but are not limited to the following fields:


  • · Applications of Catalysts
  • · Catalysis by Nano-materials
  • · Catalytic Function to Fundamental Chemical Processes at Surfaces and in Metal Complexes
  • · Catalytic Reactions
  • · Computational Catalysis
  • · Electrocatalysis
  • · Enzymatic Catalysis and Spectroscopic Methods for Structural Characterization
  • · Heterogeneous Catalysis
  • · Homogeneous Catalysis
  • · Novel Concepts in Surface Chemistry
  • · Organocatalysis
  • · Significant of Catalysis
  • · Supported Organometallic Catalysis
  • · Surface Chemistry
  • · Synthesis and Catalytic Function of Novel Inorganic Solids and Complexes
  • · Theoretical Methods of the Catalytic Processes

  • We are also interested in: 1) Short Reports – 2-5 page papers where an author can present either preliminary data or an idea with theoretical background but has not yet completed the research needed for a complete paper; 2) Book Reviews – Comments and critiques
