Malaysian Catalysis-An International Journal (MCIJ) is an open access international peer-reviewed journal published by Nanotechonolgy & Catalysis Research Center (NANOCAT) in association with University of Malaya This journal is dedicated to publications of original research in all aspects of catalysis, including Heterogeneous Catalysis, Homogeneous Catalysis, Environmental Catalysis, Energy-Oriented Catalysis, ElectroCatalysis, PhotoCatalysis  OrganoCatalysis, biocatalysis, surface science, and catalysis-related chemical kinetics. This journal accepts original research article, reviews, short communication and letters. MCIJ will be published biannually and also themed special issue by invitation edited by prominent Guest editors.

Among topics that will be the focus of this journal are;

  • Improvement of catalyst reactions not limiting to energy, fuel, polymer, pharmaceuticals, environmental, water treatment & value-added chemical production
  • New catalyst design & formulation for higher performance of existing and new catalytic reactions
  • In-depth theoretical & computational studies of new catalyst for the current & future interest in the application of catalyst & catalytic processes
  • New approach by scrutinizing the cost-effectiveness, energy efficiency and feedstock for catalyst synthesis and activation

This journal accepts full length Articles, Reviews, Communication, Letters & Comments
